Also called a low-noise block[1] [2] low-noise converter LNCor even low-noise downconverter LND[3] the device is sometimes inaccurately called a low-noise amplifier LNA.

Safety and regulation Mobile phone radiation and health Wireless electronic devices and health International Telecommunication Union Radio Regulations World Radiocommunication Conference. Two satellite TV signals can then be transmitted on the same frequency or, more usually, closely spaced frequencies and provided that they are polarized differently, the receiving equipment can still separate them and display whichever one is currently required. A similar advantage is provided by the duo LNB for simultaneous reception of signals from both the Astra Most SCR LNBs also include either a legacy mode of operation or a separate legacy output which provides the received spectrum block-downconverted to the whole IF range in the conventional way.

In fact, most LNBs are kept powered because this helps to stabilise the temperature and, thereby, the local oscillator frequency by the dissipated heat from the circuitry of LNB.

It is possible for any moisture in an LNB to freeze, causing ice to build-up in very low temperatures. In other projects Wikimedia Commons. Satellites use comparatively high radio frequencies microwaves to transmit their TV signals.

Active cooling to very low temperatures can help reduce noise too, and is often used in scientific knb applications. This is the signal to noise ratio at the input divided by the signal to noise ratio at the output.

The intermediate frequency band is anleotung wider than in a conventional LNB, as the high and low band are not split up. Along with the supply voltage level used to switch between polarizations, this enables a Universal LNB to receive both polarizations Vertical and Horizontal and the full range of frequencies in the satellite K u band under the control of the receiver, in four sub-bands: The distance anleituung the feedhorns depends on the orbital separation of the satellites to be received, the diameter and focal length of the dish used, and the position of the reception site relative to the satellites.

The frequency sum signal is filtered out and the frequency difference signal the IF is amplified and sent down the cable to the receiver:.

Although the same functionality can be achieved with separate LNBs and a switch, a monoblock LNB, constructed in aastra unit, is more convenient to install and enables the two feedhorns to be closer together than individually cased LNBs typically 60mm astea.


The LNB is usually a small box suspended on one or more short booms, or feed arms, in front of the dish reflector, at its focus although some dish designs have the LNB on or behind the reflector.

Low-noise block downconverter – Wikipedia

Each output responds to the tuner’s band and polarization selection signals independently of the other outputs and “appears” to the tuner to be a separate LNB. However, plastic glazing is transparent to microwaves and residential satellite dishes have successfully been hidden indoors looking through acrylic or polycarbonate windows to preserve the external aesthetics of the home. LNBs without a feedhorn built-in are usually provided with a C flange around the input waveguide mouth which is bolted to a matching flange around the output of the feedhorn or polarizer unit.

A corresponding component, called a block upconverter BUCis used at the satellite earth station uplink dish to convert the band of television channels to the microwave uplink frequency.

A quattro LNB is for connection to a multiswitch in a shared dish distribution system and each output provides only a quarter of the K u band signals. In a C-band antenna setup, the transmission frequencies are typically 3.

At the receiver, the optical signal is converted back to the traditional electrical signal to “appear” to the receiver as a conventional LNB. For the reception of narrow bandwidth carriers or ones using advanced modulation techniques, such as QAMhighly stable and low phase noise LNB local oscillators are required.

To combat this, many satellite receivers provide an option to keep the LNB powered while the receiver is on standby. Every LNB off the production line has a different noise figure because of manufacturing tolerances. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. The purpose of the LNB is to use the superheterodyne principle to take a block or band of relatively high frequencies and convert them to similar signals carried at a much lower frequency called the intermediate frequency or IF.

It serves as the RF front end of the satellite receiver, receiving the microwave signal from the satellite collected by the dish, amplifying it, and downconverting the block of frequencies to a lower block of intermediate frequencies IF.

The noise figure quoted in the specifications, important for determining the LNB’s suitability, is usually representative of neither that particular LNB nor the performance across the whole frequency range, since the noise figure most often quoted is the typical figure averaged over the production batch. The probe inside the LNB waveguide collects signals that are polarized in the same plane as the probe.

The prevalence of these combined units has meant that today the term LNB is commonly used to refer to all antenna units that provide the block-downconversion function, with or without a feedhorn. The LNB is a combination of low-noise amplifier, frequency mixerlocal oscillator and intermediate frequency IF amplifier. It’s common to polarize satellite TV signals because it provides a way of transmitting more TV channels using a given block of frequencies. The basic model has only 2 connections and presumably has a local oscillator of The low noise amplifier section of the LNB amplifies this weak signal while adding the minimum possible amount of noise to the signal.


The low-noise quality of an LNB is eutelaat as the noise figure or sometimes noise temperature.

The frequency conversion is performed by mixing a fixed frequency produced by a local oscillator inside the LNB with the incoming signal, to generate two signals equal to the sum of their frequencies and the difference. Asfra or more metal pins, or probes, protrude astrz the waveguide at right angles to the axis and act as antennasfeeding the signal to a printed circuit board inside the LNB’s shielded box for processing.

Wideband signals can be converted to conventional quattro signals [13] and vice versa. This either rotates the incoming signal with an electromagnet around the waveguide a magnetic polarizer or rotates an intermediate probe within the waveguide using a servo aastra a mechanical polarizer but such adjustable skew polarizers are rarely used today.

This is only likely to occur when the LNB is not receiving power from the satellite receiver i. Such an LNB usually sstra derive its power from a receiver connected to any of the outputs. Retrieved December 30, Retrieved January 12, Naleitung lower frequencies travel through monatge with much less attenuationso there is much more signal left at the satellite receiver end of the cable.

Typically, a local oscillator frequency of Retrieved January 27, So monoblock LNBs are usually a compromise solution designed to operate with standard dishes in a particular region. The Astra type LNBF that includes a montagee and polarizer is the most common variety, and this is fitted to a dish using a bracket that clamps a collar around the waveguide neck of the LNB between the feedhorn and the electronics package. Up to 16 tuners can be allocated a different frequency in the IF range and for each, the SCR LNB downconverts the corresponding individually requested transponder.

To remotely select between the two polarizations, and to compensate for inaccuracies of the skew angle, it used to be common to fit a polarizer in front of the LNB’s waveguide mouth.

A low-noise block downconverter LNB is the receiving device mounted on satellite dishes used for satellite Lmb reception, which collects the radio waves from the dish and converts them to a signal which is sent through a cable to the receiver inside the building. The signal received by the LNB is anleitujg weak and it has to be amplified before downconversion. An LNB with a single feedhorn but multiple outputs for connection to multiple tuners in separate receivers or within the same receiver in the case of a twin-tuner PVR receiver.
