Use and Design of T-Attenuation Pads

In discrete RF design, the output power of a transmitter is usually set specifically for the power output needed to meet operational and certification requirements. However, today many engineers prefer to use predesigned RF modules such as those manufactured by Linx in their designs. These RF modules provide a “black box” approach to RF design. An engineer simply places a module in circuit, provides an antenna, power, and a serial data stream and instantly has a wireless data link.
