The RFM3202 from Mercury Systems is a Microwave Transceiver that operates from 2 to 18 GHz. This SOSA-aligned wideband transceiver can be used for demanding spectrum processing applications. It has two independently tuned coherent up-conversion and two down-conversion channels for EW, direction finding, SIGINT, and signal measurement applications. Each channel has an instantaneous bandwidth of 2 GHz, and it also includes an RF conversion bypass for the first Nyquist direct digitization downstream. The transceiver provides a gain of 25 dB and has a dynamic range of 63 dB. It has a tuning speed of less than 250 μs and a tuning resolution of 10 MHz.
The RFM3202 is OpenVPX-compliant and includes 1 GbE control interface. It is available in a compact and ruggedized 3U enclosure and requires a DC s.upply of +3.3/12 V.
