SDR-RF 2500B MODULE

SDR-RF 2500B module is a low power and high performance RF transmitter-receiver solution designed for operation in K-band centered at 25GHz. It is intended to interface with the processor module SDR-PM 402, which functions as a micro controller, processor and power management with a 24-pin flat flex cable (FFC) to form a standalone system.

Typical output power of the transmitter channel is 16dBm. Single-ended SMA female connectors are installed for easy connection to antennas.

The receiver has an overall 6.4dB noise figure with one stage of low-noise amplifier and exceptionally linear response with a flat gain of 28dB.

The ability of wide-range frequency-tuning makes this RF module ideal for applications from unlicensed ISM band to high-resolution wide-band.

FEATURES 

  • Coverage of the K-band frequency centered at 25GHz
  • FMCW/FSK/CW waveforms
  • Wide bandwidth up to 2GHz
  • High conversion gain in the receiver channel
  • Low overall noise figure
  • Moderate output power
  • Low phase noise
  • Single +5V DC supply voltage
  • Low power consumption
  • SMA connectors for antennas
  • 24-pin FFC cable for connecting to our processor module
  • Suppression of cooling fan interference
  • On-board automatic correction of VCO nonlinearity
  • RF Shielding
