New Digitally Controlled Programmable Attenuators for Frequencies Up to 40 GHz

Fairview Microwave recently released a new family of digitally controlled programmable attenuators with performance up to 40 GHz and up to 60 dB attenuation range with 0.03 dB minimum step size. The digitally controlled attenuators adjust the amplitude of signal levels in a variety of applications (e.g., electronic warfare, aerospace communication systems, and test/measurement systems). The designs utilize PIN diode semiconductor technology that generates extremely fast switching performance between attenuation states over wide frequency bands.  Fairview-Attenuators-SQ
