The VMEST is a broadband microwave tuner/down converter housed in a 3-slot 6U VME package. The VMET covers 50 MHz to 18 GHz with 10 Hz tuning step size. Its compact industry standard VME modular package makes VMEST ideal for complex test and measurement systems where space is limited.
Frequency coverage is divided into two bands, each having a separate SMA input connector. Band 1 covers 50 MHz to 2000 MHz. Band 2 covers 2000 MHz to 18 GHz and includes a broad band YIG pre-selector. The desired band is switch selectable. The VMET tuner employs a triple conversion architecture with selectable IF output frequencies at 70 MHz or 140 MHz. This architecture is engineered for low spurious and high dynamic range. The agile LO synthesizer in this system is a standard Elcom IBS, indirect, type of frequency synthesizer delivering excellent phase noise and fast tuning and small step size.
