The RFM3202 from Mercury Systems is a Microwave Transceiver that operates from 2 to 18 GHz. This wideband transceiver can be used for demanding spectrum processing applications. With four high-bandwidth frequency-conversion channels, the new SOSA aligned transceiver can achieve what previously required multiple products, enabling much-needed capabilities for smaller platforms. It can be configured to use two channels for up-conversion and two channels for down-conversion. Each channel has an instantaneous bandwidth of 2 GHz.
To maximize spectral density, this module enables dual-channel coherent operation, utilizing two up-conversion and down-conversion channels for better direction finding. The RFM3202 has an OpenVPX compliant interface. It is available in a compact and ruggedized 3U enclosure and is suitable for use in EW, direction finding, SIGINT and signal measurement applications.
