The DTA-100M50G-30-CD-1 from Planar Monolithics Industries is a 5-bit Programmable PIN Diode Attenuator that operates from 100 MHz to 50 GHz. It provides an attenuation of 30 dB with a step size of 1 dB. The attenuator has an insertion loss of less than 10 dB, a switching time of below 1 µs (ON time) and 0.5 µs (OFF time). It can handle an input power of up to 24 dBm and has a VSWR of less than 2.5:1. This attenuator requires a DC supply of 15 V and consumes less than 50 mA of current. It is available in a module that measures 2.0 x 1.8 x 0.5 inches and has 2.4 mm Female and 15-PIN micro-D Female connectors.
