The integration of former external components, like e.g. image rejection filter, low noise amplifier as well as the switching of receiving and transmitting path enables the installation of a 47 GHz station with just a small number of components. Only an oscillator module with 11736 MHz and a waveguide switch are necessary. The design of the LO input allows the use of existing oscillators. The waveguide connectors are designed to work with PROCOM and UG383/U flanges. For the control of an external waveguide switch, there is a 12V output on the transverter that is only powered during the transmission phase.
A bigger attenuator at the IF input port allows an input power of up to 5 watts. Self-resettable polyfuses prevent damages of the transverter module, especially if it is used in a portable station. The small mechanical dimensions of the transverter, which is designed in SMD technology, allow the installation of a small portable station as well as a powerful home station.
Of course, the transverter can be extended by for example a low noise amplifier or a power amplifier module.
