The D550 Series Downconverter from Novella SatComs is 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.

  • Frequency range: 3.4 to 4.8GHz (check model datasheet)
  • Frequency range: 70 +/- 20MHz or 140 +/- 40MHz (check model datasheet)
  • Gain: 30 to 50dB, adjustable in 0.1dB steps
  • Synthesiser step size: 1kHz.
