Microwaves are electromagnetic radiation with frequencies between 300 MHz  and 300 GHz and wavelengths ranging from 1 m to 1 mm. Microwaves are used in radar, radio astronomy, wireless networks, satellite and spacecraft communication, microwave radio relay networks, remote sensing, spectroscopy, industrial heating, and microwave ovens. Downconverter is a device that converts microwave signals to RF frequencies with minimal phase and AM noise contribution. It permits direct tuning to desired frequencies without requiring operator interpretation. Microwave downconverter offers best noise performance for calibration labs, radar, commercial wireless, and satellite terrestrial microwave links. Downconverters vary based on input frequency, output frequency, phase noise, IF bandwidth, and other parameters. Microwave downconverter is a part of phase noise measurement system.

Features such as reduced phase noise, improved flexibility and usability, and high signal integrity drive the microwave downconverter market. Microwave downconverter provides high-performance downconversion, spectrum monitoring, radar monitoring, spectral analysis, frequency measurement, fundamental and harmonic mixing, power measurement, modulation analysis, and wideband recording system. It can be differentiated in terms of parameters, such as RF input, LO input, IF output, accuracy, power meter option, conversion gain, and noise figure. Microwave downconverter provides superior signal capture capability, utilizing multiple conversion design with pre-selection filtering, high-quality components, and low phase-noise synthesizers. It communicates with external equipment via digital communication bus. Microwave downconverter comprises a front panel, a rear panel, and the equipment. Input and output connections are provided by connectors located on the front and back panels of the equipment. Its installation may require two mounting configurations, a tilt stand bench mount or a rack mount. Vendors are presently focusing on providing integrated microwave downconverter that is small in size and high in reliability. Microwave downconverter uses compact chips with high filtering rate which enables excellent LO and RF specifications. In order to address the complex needs of satellite operators, downconverters are used in systems where an accurate phase relationship between channels is required. This trend is expected to have significant impact on the growth of the microwave downconverter market during the forecast period.
