The ACM2052 from KRATOS General Microwave is an Amplitude Control Module that operates from 0.5 to 2 GHz. It provides precise control of signal amplitude and Pulse Modulation over a high dynamic range with very fine resolution. The module provides a gain of 17 dB, has a P1dB of 15 dBm and an isolation of more than 80 dB. It has harmonics of less than -60 dB and a VSWR of under 2.5:1. The ACM provides an attenuation of more than 100 dB and has a 10-bit TTL control which enables a nominal resolution of 0.1 dB.
The ACM2052 is designed using optimum construction technology to ease manufacturing. It requires a DC supply voltage of from -15 to +15 V while consuming up to 750 mA of current. The ACM is available in a module that measures 185.4 x 76.2 x 26.7 mm and is suitable for use in high performance Simulator and ATE Systems.
