Pasternack, an Infinite Electronics brand and a leading provider of RF, microwave, and millimeter-wave products, has expanded its portfolio of step attenuators for use in high-reliability applications requiring precise control of signal levels, including precision measurements, prototyping and characterization product systems, and instrumentation.
The new step attenuators feature a maximum VSWR of 1.4:1, a maximum insertion loss of 1 dB, and an attenuation accuracy of +/- 5 dB, making them well-suited for high-reliability applications requiring accurate control of attenuation values.
Additional performance characteristics for these new step attenuators include high power and wide coverage with a 2-watt power rating and an operating frequency range up to 18 GHz. To address a wide variety of applications, they provide attenuation step sides ranging from 1 dB to 99 dB and SMA and N-type connectorized designs.
“This new series of step attenuators ensures our customers attain reliable performance for their extreme precision applications,” said Steven Pong, Senior Product Manager.
