NANOCOM X-Band Image

The NANOCOM X-Band from Space Micro is a space qualified Transceiver that operates from 8.2 to 8.6 GHz (Tx) and 7.145 to 7.235 GHz (Rx). It is a quick-to-field, cost-effective solution that is designed to perform in extreme environmental conditions. This transceiver unit is programmable on orbit and is based on a Xilinx Zynq SoC. It has a bandwidth of 50 MHz and supports modulation schemes such as BPSK, QPSK, OQPSK, and BPSK-on-sub-carrier. This radiation-tolerant transceiver is secured by an AEC-256-GCM authenticated encryption scheme and has an on-board 100 MHz OCXO for the clock (also lockable to 10 MHz). It has a modular design that allows for ease of configuration to support different data rates, frequencies, and bandwidths. On the Tx side, it delivers an output power of 5 W (~37 dBm) with a data rate of 400 Mbps while on the Rx side, it has a noise figure of 2 dB and a dynamic range from -125 dBm to -45 dBm.

This low-SWaP X-Band transceiver requires a DC supply from 18 to 40 V and consumes 30 W (radio) and 40 W (power amplifier) of power. It can be remotely controlled via SpaceWire (1x SpaceWire if using Ethernet (provided with IP encapsulation)) and GigE interfaces and has an option for CAN bus. This transceiver is available in an enclosure that measures 12.7 x 9.0 x 10.0 cm and is ideal for satellite constellations, network gateway radio, satellite orbits (LEO, MEO, GEO, and Cislunar), signal intelligence receiver, mission data transmitter, and telemetry, tracking, and command (TTC) applications.
