NANO-POLE® Series
2014 NANO banner

The NANO-POLE features an on-board 25V switching regulator. It is possible to disable this supply and use an external 25V. Slightly higher power versions of the NANO-POLE may be possible depending on filter parameters.

3.6 Timing Requirements

3.6.1 SPI Interface Timing

The SPI tune command interface is a standard SPI interface with Mode = 0 (CPOL = 0, CPHA = 0). There are 8 data bits. The interface data MSB first. If a bit is not used in the tune position, leave it set to logic low, '0'.

6.0 Tune Time

Tune times include internal processing of the tune command data and the 90% settled RF amplitude response time of the filter. This time excludes the time required to load the tune command into the filter. Low level signal measurements were utilized to show the receive tune time that can be expected. In addition, RF power in excess of +0 dBm is considered to be "hot switching" of the filter. While portions of the data taken in "Table 8.Typical RF Tune Times" was taken via "hot switching," this does not imply that tuning operation of the filter into these levels can be done reliably. It is recommended that RF is less than 0 dBm during a tune event.
