PMI Model No.
SAA-500M18G-20DB-SFF is a switch bit attenuator that
operates over the frequency range of 500 MHz to 18 GHz. This model
provides 20 dB of attenuation when a TTL "0" is applied and less than
3 dB of insertion loss when TTL "1" is applied. This attenuator
switches between states in less than 100 nsec and maintains a maximum
VSWR of 2.0:1 into a 50 ohm impedance. ±5 VDC is required to power the
attenuator and it is supplied in a housing measuring 1.0" x 0.7" x
0.35". Other frequency ranges and attenuation values are available.
