Compact Converters (CC)
Virginia Diodes offers compact converters (CCs) for frequency up and down-conversion. These converters are easy to use and well suited for high performance up and down conversion of wide band modulated millimeter-wave signals. VDI CCs offer full waveguide band coverage and are available from WR28 (22.5-40 GHz) to WR2.2 (330-500 GHz) with additional CCs under development. Compact converters can typically be delivered within 9-11 weeks ARO or less. Contact VDI for more information.
Due to the double sideband nature of the CCUs, two sidebands (upper and lower sidebands) are generated during the upconversion process. A filter may be preferred for certain applications to eliminate one sideband. Click here for more information about our band pass filters.
VDI also offers waveguide amplifiers to boost the transmitted signal power out of the up-converter. Click here for more information about our amplifiers.
