Ham It Up v1.2 - RF Upconverter

Ham It Up v1.2 - RF Upconverter

NooElec Ham It Up Upconverter latest version v1.2!  Major changes include:
  • Sturdier USB-B connector supplants the micro-B connector used on v1.0
  • Filters completely redesigned for 125MHz operation to move the LO away from the broadcast FM band.  Of course, a high-quality 125MHz oscillator is included
  • USB shield separated from USB ground
  • Other components in the RF path revised for improved SNR
NooElec Ham It Up Upconverter v1.2 features:
  • Female SMA for both input and output for a wide array of connectivity options 
  • In-line SMA connectors.  Much easier to connect and manipulate than side-by-side SMA connectors 
  • Antenna protection on RF input; in-circuit in both enable and passthrough mode 
  • All critical components sourced exclusively from North American parts distributors
  • Only ultra-low-noise components used in the signal path
  • Ultra-high-Q, low ESR inductors and capacitors used for all filters
  • Powered by common USB-B USB for a multitude of power options 
  • RF-suitable power supply regulation (TPS79333) 
  • PTC fuse on USB power input to protect your upconverter from short circuits
  • Upconverter enable/passthrough toggle switch--less fiddling with small, delicate cables and connectors 
  • Socketed oscillator for a simple upgrade path 
  • Stable 25ppm oscillator included 
  • LO disabled in passthrough mode 
  • A maximum input level of +1dBm with LO at +7dBm
  • High-quality 2-layer PCB with ENIG finish 
  • Designed to fit standard off-the-shelf Hammond enclosures 
  • 2 mounting holes for standard PC screws 
  • Designed and manufacturered in conjunction with Opendous Inc., an excellent open-hardware design company 
  • Full project documentation--schematics, PCB design files, assembly information--is freely available.  DIY'ers rejoice!  We will have a limited number of bare PCBs available for those who want to 'roll their own' 
  • A portion of the proceeds from your purchase will be used to support this and other open-hardwareopen-source initiatives
