Flag/report this product


  • An ultra high-performance wideband microwave receiver
  • Features a direct digital synthesizer, which uncouples tuning speed from phase noise
  • Highly suitable for signals intelligence and electronic warfare systems
  • Comprises two single-slot VME modules: the 1800RF radio frequency module and the 1800S synthesizer module; together, these modules form a microwave downconverter tunable over the entire 0.5 GHz to 18 GHz range, providing both narrowband and wideband outputs
  • Simultaneous analog outputs of 80 MHz and 500 MHz are centered at 160 MHz and 1 GHz, respectively
  • Analog outputs are suitable for direct input into an external A/D converter for special signal processing, spectral analysis, and pulse parameterization such as the Echotek A/D FPGA digital receiver boards
  • Echotek RF products leverage a direct digital synthesis (DDS) architecture, which offers fast frequency agility as well as the elimination of the tuned frequency overshoot or undershoot typically associated with traditional analog phase locked loop (PLL) designs
  • The measured integrated phase noise is
  • Equally suited for single-channel and multichannel phase-coherent systems, including beamforming and phase interferometry for direction finding
