Pasternack, an Infinite Electronics brand and a leading provider of RF, microwave and millimeter wave products, has launched a new line of 10, 25, 50 and 100 Watt RF attenuators with operating frequencies up to 18 GHz depending on the configuration.
Pasternack now offers 31 high power, fixed attenuators which offer attenuation levels of 3 dB, 6 dB, 10 dB, 20 dB, 30 dB and 40 dB. Additionally, in-series connector gender interfaces are available in male-female configurations with both SMA and Type-N connector options.
These new fixed RF attenuators boast power ratings of 10 Watts, 25 Watts, 50 Watts or 100 Watts and a peak power rating of 500 Watts. The 10 Watt and 25 Watt versions feature bi-directional operation, while the 50 Watt and 100 Watt models support directional operation. Additional features include VSWR as low as 1.2:1, flat RF response and performance, and an RFI-resistant design.
The attenuators are constructed with black anodized aluminum heatsink bodies and are designed with large cooling fins which aid in heat dissipation at high temperatures.
“These new high power RF attenuators are perfect for power limiting in both production and R&D applications, impedance matching, and signal leveling inside RF test systems. By offering a wide selection of off-the-shelf options, we are able to satisfy nearly every RF attenuation application,” said Steven Pong, Product Line Manager.
