Vaunix Technology Corporation has added the LDA-203 to its family of LDA Series digital attenuators, a unit with an operating frequency of 1 to 20 GHz.

It features a 0 to 63 dB attenuation range and a step size resolution of 0.5 dB. This model is powered and controlled by connection to a PC or self-powered USB hub, and is programmable for fixed attenuation or swept attenuation ramps directly from the included graphical user interface (GUI) software.

Easily programmable for ATE applications, the LDA digital attenuators can also be used in WiMAX, 3G, 4G, LTE, DVB Fading Simulators, and engineering and production test labs.
