Block Down Converter C-Band: Orbital 3300Source: Orbital Research
Block down converters, or BDCs, are used in conjunction with LNAs to increase bandwidth coverage. The Orbital 3300 is a C-Band Block Down Converter with custom input/output connector types, external DC input, coaxial DC input, and dual power options.
If you’re working with an LNA that covers your satellite but have additional bandwidth that you need to cover, than the Orbital 3300 Block Down Converter can help. In addition to the aforementioned options, the BDC’s gain can be customized in order to optimize compression point and noise distribution. Download the datasheet for information on specifications.
