The PTRAN-100M18G-SFB-3UVPX-MAH is a transceiver that operates from 100 MHz to 18 GHz. This unit up-converts a 100 MHz to 4 GHz transmit signal to a 2 to 18 GHz signal and down converts a 100 MHz to 18 GHz received signal to a 100 MHz to 4 GHz intermediate frequency range for analog to digital conversion. The transceiver has a receive filter bank that incorporates a 2 way absorptive switch to select an input, along with two 6-way switches allowing one of the six filter paths to be chosen. A filter bank is also used in the transmit path, with two 6-way switches allowing one of the six filter paths to the chosen.
