The Model 5923-144-XX-YY is designed using a two stage pHEMT MMIC LNA, with each stage followed by a SAW filter, which provides over 70 dB of image rejection. It has a PLL local oscillator which is locked to an external 10 MHz reference. The external 10 MHz reference is filtered internally by a 10 MHz crystal filter which helps to improve phase noise and rejection of spurious signal which might be on the reference.
Also employed is a high dynamic range double balanced mixer followed by an IF filter. The customer has a choice of IF frequencies. It is available with an IF output of 28 to 32 MHz or 14 to 18 MHz.
Can be used on input and output. 10 MHz input is BNC female
