Spacek Labs model RE-15FISO is a full-band receiver which downconverts all of E-Band (60-90 GHz) to an IF of 2 to 32 GHz. The LO is derived from a mechanical tuned Gunn oscillator that provides 15 mW @ 58 GHz. The bias for the oscillator is +7 VDC @ 1 Amp typ. A 20 dB isolator is used between the LO and mixer. The RF port is WR-12 and the IF port is K(F). The mixer conversion loss is 7 dB typ, and 14 dB max. The loss includes an RF image reject filter and full-band isolator. This receiver can be used to extend the frequency range of a spectrum analyzer or perform measurements in the E-band radio frequency range.
