D350 L-Band Downconverter: Novella SatComs frequency downconverters are based on an L-Band to VHF (70 or 140MHz) module built on a single PCB.

The latest frequency synthesis techniques and surface mount components are used to achieve wide coverage, frequency agility, very low phase noise and level of spurii. These modules may be packaged on their own, as L-Band downconverters, or together with SHF to L-Band block downconverters (BDCs) as C, X or Ku-Band downconverters.

L-Band coverage of this card may be 950 to 1,750MHz or 950 to 2,150MHz. The standard coverage card is used for standard L, C, X or Ku-Band downconverters. The extended coverage card may be used in conjunction with dual-band or extended coverage LNBs, or with two or more Ku to L-Band block converters to make extended coverage Ku-Band converters, or as a test loop translator.

  • Input frequency 950 - 2,150 MHz (check datasheet for model)
  • Output frequency 70 +/- 20MHZ or 140 +/- 40 MHz (check datasheet for model)
  • Gain 20 to 40dB, adjustable in 0.1dB steps
  • Synthesiser step size: 1kHz.
