Pico Digital – SP860 – 806 MHz Channelized-Agile Processor

  • 132-Channel Range 5.75-806 MHz (CATV T7-T13 and 2-125, TV 2-69)
  • High 60dBmV output for optimum carrier-to-noise performance
  • Over 60dB spurious output and channel rejection provide interference-free adjacent channel operation
  • Sync tip detection AGC circuitry provides wide dynamic range for robust system regulation
  • BTSC stereo compatibility for pass-through of stereo signals


The Pico Macom SP860 is a professional re-broadcast grade heterodyne signal processor that converts one channel to another without the need to demodulate and remodulate the signal. The SP860 features a composite audio-video IF loop, which provides compatibility with encoders, ghost cancellers, and video-override applications. Input and output amplifier band-pass filtering and the use of an IF SAW filter guarantee superior out-of-band carrier-to-noise thereby dramatically improving picture quality. The Pico Macom SP860 uses state-of-the-art low noise PLL, SAW filter, and AGC techniques to provide superior quality, reliability, and performance. The unique sync tip detection AGC design delivers consistently high quality pictures even at extremely low input levels. High input filter selectivity and SAW filtering provide the Pico Macom SP860 with the ability to process any single cable channel, even in the most crowded systems. The unit’s high frequency and extremely high accuracy phase-locked loop oscillators enable the unit to meet the frequency offset and stability requirements of FCC Docket 21006. Modular construction allows the processor to be bench reconfigured to any combination of input and output channels with minimum effort. Pico Macom backs up this product with its industry leading 5-year limited warranty.
