 Abstract
In this paper, a Multi-Band Ku-band down converter was designed for reception of multi-band digital satellite broadcasting. The Multi-band low-nose down converter was designed to form four local oscillator frequencies (9.75, 10, 10.75 and 11.3GHz) representing a low phase noise due to VCO-PLL with respect to input signals of 10.7 to 12.75GHz and 3-stage low noise amplifier circuit by broadband noise matching, and to select an one band of intermediate frequency (IF) channels by digital control. The developed low-noise downconverter exhibited the full conversion gain of 64dB, and the noise figure of low-noise amplifier was 0.7dB, the P1dB of output signal 15dBm, and the phase noise -73dBc@100Hz at the band 1 carrier frequency of 9.75GHz. The low noise block downconverter (LNB) for receiving four-band digital satellite broadcasting designed in this paper can be used for satellite broadcasting of vessels navigating international waters.
