Title
(EN) SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR RECONFIGURING RF SIGNALS IN A MULTI-INPUT RECEIVER
(FR) SYSTÈME ET PROCÉDÉ PERMETTANT DE RECONFIGURER DES SIGNAUX RF DANS UN RÉCEPTEUR À ENTRÉES MULTIPLES
Abstract
(EN) A multi-input receiver including a plurality of RF antennas, a multi-channel receiver, an input port configuration block (IPCB), and a configuration block controller. The IPCB includes at least two two-way connection modules, at least one four-way connection module, at least one direct connection module, and a plurality of electronic signal pathways. Each connection module includes a connection module input port communicatively coupled to an RF antenna of the plurality of RF antennas, a connection module output port communicatively coupled to a channel of the multi-channel receiver, and a mechanical diversion switch. The mechanical diversion switches and the plurality of electronic signal pathways are positioned and configured such that the mechanical diversion switch of each connection module communicatively couples a splitter bypass signal, a 1x2 signal, or a 1x4 signal to the connection module output port on a selective basis.
(FR) L'invention concerne un récepteur à entrées multiples comprenant une pluralité d'antennes RF, un récepteur à canaux multiples, un bloc de configuration de port d'entrée (IPCB), et un contrôleur de bloc de configuration. L'IPCB comprend au moins deux modules de connexion à deux voies, au moins un module de connexion à quatre voies, au moins un module de connexion directe, et une pluralité de chemins de signaux électroniques. Chaque module de connexion comprend un port d'entrée de module de connexion couplé en communication à une antenne RF de la pluralité d'antennes RF, un port de sortie de module de connexion couplé en communication à un canal du récepteur à canaux multiples, et un commutateur de dérivation mécanique. Les commutateurs de dérivation mécaniques et la pluralité de chemins de signaux électroniques sont positionnés et configurés de telle sorte que le commutateur de dérivation mécanique de chaque module de connexion couple en communication un signal de contournement de filtre, un signal 1x2, ou un signal 1x4 au port de sortie de module de connexion sur une base sélective.
