Model ME-15X2 Broadband Downconverter
Spacek Labs model ME-15X2 is a full-band receiver that downconverts all of E-Band (60-90 GHz) to an IF of 1 to 31 GHz. The conversion loss is 7 dB typical, 13.5 dB max. The LO is derived from a customer supplied 29.5 GHz signal @ +15 to +17 dBm that drives a passive doubler generating +5 dBm @ 59 GHz. The mixer requires +15 VDC @ 10 mA bias. The RF port is WR-12 waveguide and the LO and IF ports are coaxial 2.9mm "K” (f) connectors. This receiver can be used to extend the frequency range of a spectrum analyzer with close in measurements using a customer supplied stable LO source.
