conversion gain

[kən′vər·zhən ‚gān]
(electronics)
Ratio of the intermediate-frequency output voltage to the input signal voltage of the first detector of a superheterodyne receiver.
Ratio of the available intermediate-frequency power output of a converter or mixer to the available radio-frequency power input.
(nucleonics)

Figure 4 illustrates the measured conversion gain versus LO power at 5.8 GHz.
Experience will help vendors at all levels of the conversion gain efficiency.
Their current prices are 10% and 6% below the repurchase prices, moreover, OGK-1 offers conversion gain of 3.8% (OGK-3 trades almost in line with conversion ratio).
Thus, a parallel LC tank resonated at [[omega].sub.FI1] can be chosen as the load of the first-stage mixer to improve the system conversion gain.
Major features of the STW82100B: High input linearity 8dB conversion gain 10.5dB noise figure Excellent 'spurious performance'
ADI's new passive mixers extend across a 700-MHz to 2800-MHz frequency range in a single device while delivering input IP3 (third order intercept) of 24 dBm, an 11 dB SSB noise figure and 7 dB of power conversion gain. These performance specifications are maintained across the full operating frequency range.
Maybe you have tax losses that can be used to offset all or a portion of the conversion gain? Also, to help cushion the tax blow is a federal tax law that will allow you to spread your gain over the three years--2010, 2011 and 2012--as long as you make the conversion in 2010.
Typical conversion gain is 13 dB, IF bandwidth is 0.5 to 3.0 GHz, OTO1 is 29 dBm and LO input power range is -5 to +5 dBm.
