Pasternack, an Infinite Electronics brand and a leading provider of RF, microwave and millimeter-wave products, has expanded its line of waveguide products with the introduction of new voltage variable waveguide attenuators. These waveguide attenuators from Pasternack utilize GaAs MMIC semiconductor technology and offer 0 dB to 30 dB attenuation tuning adjustment with a voltage range of 0 Vdc to 5 Vdc. Designers will find these broadband, voltage variable waveguide attenuators found in receive chains to adjust mm-wave signal levels to optimize system-level performance.
These broadband, waveguide and voltage variable attenuators typically features a fast switching speed of 25 nsec, insertion loss ranges from 4 to 6 dB, and high-input power handling up to +23 dBm. The attenuators are available in rugged, compact, military-grade, gold-plated aluminum package designs that operate across −10 to +60 degrees Celsius. They are available in multiple waveguide sizes and can withstand exposure to up to 95% relative humidity and altitudes of up to 10,000 feet.
“Our new line of high-reliability, waveguide packaged, voltage variable attenuators are ideal for downlink or receive channels where adjusting/tuning signal levels to optimize system-level performance is necessary. These continuously variable waveguide attenuators are in-stock and available to ship the same day ordered," said Tim Galla, Product Manager.
Pasternack’s new waveguide packaged, voltage variable attenuators are in-stock and ready for immediate shipment with no minimum order quantity.
