The module is based on a double-conversion process,
where the incoming frequency is down-converted to the
output frequency 12 kHz. This IF output is also available
as a standard feature of this device. Careful design ensures that images
and spurious mixing products are significantly reduced.
Tracking filters are employed in the front-end, and
the module features impressive spurious-free dynamic range.
The system is robust and compact, and is powered from 12 V DC power supply (AC/DC adapter supplied),
and consumes approx 6 W of power, with externally controlled power-saving mode provided.
