RTM 10 Channel Down-Converter

The DRTM-DWC10 is a ten channel high frequency down-converter RTM module compliant with the MTCA.4 specification. The unit operates in the L-, S-band at input center frequencies from 700MHz – 4GHz band. It offers an excellent amplitude and phase short-term stability of typically <0.005% and <10fs (rms) in the range of 10Hz to 1MHz*. Each output intermediate frequency of the DRTM-DWC10 is fully differential available at the RTM Zone 3 connector. The signals can be readout by any Class A1 compatible AMC digitizer board. The DRTM-DWC10 offers switchable front-end power level attenuators for an accurate full-scale operation of AMC digitizers. The unit supports LO and CLK input signals externally from the front panel as well as internally from an RF-backplane. The module offers an on board LO power level monitor and a user I2C interface for general purpose.
