-- Hot-Switchable Variable Attenuators up to 6 GHz Released by Fairview Microwave
Allen, TX - Fairview Microwave, Inc. a preeminent supplier of on-demand microwave and RF
components, has released a new line of compact
. RF attenuators are used to reduce the amplitude of an electronic signature
in many common electronic scenarios including lab testing equipment, distributed antenna systems
(DAS) and power and signal monitoring systems.
Fairview Microwave’s new line of variable
step attenuators come in 3 and 6 GHz frequency models and several different connector configurations
including SMA and N type connectors with side or rear mount positions. Several of these attenuators
are hot-switchable, meaning attenuation can be changed on the fly without powering down the
system, allowing test data to be read continuously. Several models with varying attenuation
adjustments are available including 0 to 12 dB attenuation in 1 dB steps and 0 to 40 dB attenuation
in 10 dB steps, with other options available upon request.
These new attenuator products
also boast low attenuation tolerance and low insertion loss. “Our new lines of hot-switchable
variable attenuators provide engineers the flexibility to adjust and customize the RF performance
of their distributed systems while the system is live”, says Greg Arnold, Technical Sales Manager
for Fairview Microwave. “This adds an invaluable tool to the arsenal of components available
to engineers for efficiently optimizing their DAS, multi-element antenna arrays or any multi-channel
system requiring individual amplitude adjustment.”
Fairview’s new hot-switchable variable
attenuators are in-stock and available to ship today. You can view the complete offering of
