Rockleigh, New JerseyDesigned for SIGINT (signals intelligence) applications, Elcom Technologies, Inc. offers its ELFE Frequency Extender, a rack-mounted box that can be used with a variety of lower-frequency receivers. The ELFE covers bands from 18-GHz to 40-GHz.
A separate RF input accepts 18-GHz to 40-GHz signals, and they're converted to a 2-GHz to 18-GHz range for the accompanying tuner or receiver. The system offers 15-dB of conversion gain, and exhibits a 12-dB noise figure spec.
Regardless of its extended coverage, the ELFE includes a dedicated RF input that spans 500-MHz to 18-GHz. When extended range isn't selected on the ELFE, the 500-MHz through 18-GHz signal is routed through the unit to the accompanying microwave tuner or receiver.
The RF pass-through feature, along with the down-conversion, lets the ELFE operate with equipment from other manufacturers.
