Pasternack Expands Line of Programmable Attenuators
Pasternack has released a new series of programmable attenuators designed to meet the needs of electronic warfare, test and measurement, and electronic countermeasures applications.
Pasternack’s new programmable attenuators offer flexibility and programmability by producing different values of RF signal attenuation on demand. These high-performance attenuators provide +/- 0.7 dB attenuation accuracy and a switching speed of 0.35 microseconds.
The comprehensive selection of programmable attenuators comes in TTL, USB, or relay-controlled options, and they include SMA, N-Type, and 2.92 mm female connector options.
Pasternack’s attenuators feature wide coverage with broadband RF, microwave, and mmWave frequencies ranging from DC to 40 GHz. Their attenuation ranges from 31 dB to 95 dB with 0.5 dB and 1 dB step sizes.
Additionally, these programmable attenuators are designed with compact and rugged military-grade coaxial packages and an operational temperature range from -40 degrees to +85 degrees Celsius.
“Pasternack’s innovative lineup of broadband programmable attenuators offers designers flexibility with TTL, USB, or relay-controlled capabilities. The comprehensive selection of attenuation ranges and step sizes in addition to the wide coverage, precise dB accuracy, and high switching speeds make these attenuators ideal for test and measurement applications,” said Tim Galla, Product Line Manager.
