Vaunix Launches an 8x8 Digital Matrix Attenuator from 500 MHz to 6 GHz

Vaunix Technology, a leading provider of portable and programmable RF and microwave test devices and handover test systems, has released a Digital Matrix Attenuator for wireless testing. The VMA-Q8X8SE is an 8X8 Digital Matrix Attenuator that can be used as a fully programmable wireless handover test system. Operating at a frequency range from 500 MHz to 6 GHz the attenuator system covers the UHF, L, S, and C-bands. The system features a full-fan-out design with all paths operating bidirectionally. 

Inside the space saving 3RU 19-inch rack mount chassis, the user can independently control each of the 64 attenuators providing up to 90 dB of attenuation with an ultra-small step size of just 0.1 dB. The channels can also be easily programmed for fixed attenuation, swept attenuation ramps or custom fading profiles using Vaunix’s easy-to-use software and intuitive user interface.

The integrated Windows PC allows for stand-alone operation and control by simply connecting a monitor, keyboard, and mouse. It can also be used as the master controller for other connected instruments to create a highly integrated test platform. Alternatively, the VMA-Q8x8SE can be connected to the local network to allow for remote access and control.

Handover testing experts, particularly those working in MIMO using complex 5G, Wi-Fi, and satcom antenna modules will find value in the ease and flexibility of creating test applications.
