The HC05 Series from Smiths Interconnect are pre-tested, cost-effective temperature variable fixed chip attenuators for next-generation commercial space applications. These attenuators operate from DC to 18 GHz and have attenuation values up to 20 dB. They help in maintaining a consistent signal between satellites, spacecraft and the Earth in the most demanding and mission-critical environments. The temperature variable attenuators feature the patented Thermopad technology, a totally passive, surface-mounted device that offset gain variation over temperature. These attenuators are ideal for SATCOM, Power amplifiers, Mixers and directional couplers. The HC Series provides 100% flight product testing for mission assurance (Group A). Additional testing (Group B and C) are also available for further product qualification.
