The Pico Macom PFAD900CSS is a frequency agile professional re-broadcast grade, microprocessor controlled CATV demodulator. Its phase-locked-loop frequency control, envelope signal detection, and superior SAW filtering minimize adjacent channel interference and assure accurate and spurious free performance. The unit accepts any NTSC television signal in the 5.75-806MHz frequency range converting it to baseband video and audio, while maintaining over 60dB S/N ratio. The subband capabilities allow the reception of remote channel origination for redistribution over the entire cable system making it the ideal signal processor in government and
institutional environments. A rear-panel switch enables sub-band channel operation. IRC or HRC offsets can be activated via push-button switches on the front panel. The unit’s PLL circuitry in conjunction with the non-volatile memory contained in the microprocessor ensures easy and reliable channel selection and restoration. The PFAD900CSS provides three additional outputs: (1) an IF output to monitor tuner status and use in encoder, ghost cancelling, and video override applications; (2) a 4.5MHz sub-carrier output; and (3) a broadband multiplex (MPX) output for high quality BTSC stereo. The PFAD900CSS demodulator is shipped with all internal adjustments preset. Pico Macom backs up this product with its industry leading 5-year limited warranty.
