Programmable attenuator targets 5G applications
The programmable attenuator operates over 100 MHz to 40 GHz, making it ideal for broadband testing of 5G wireless radios and networks. The attenuator is rated for +25 dBm of RF input power and has a switching speed of 0.5μs.
The attenuator has five individually controlled steps: 1-dB, 2-dB, 4-dB, 8-dB and 16-dB. Each of the attenuation steps has a corresponding TTL control line. Combinational attenuation values can be set using multiple control lines simultaneously.
This step attenuator is available with 2.9-mm female coaxial RF connectors.
