Pasternack Intro New Lines of Digitally Programmable Attenuators

Brand New 5-10 Bit PIN Diode Digital Step Attenuators Up to 40 GHz Now Available from Pasternack

November 13, 2014 – Irvine, CA - Pasternack Enterprises, Inc., a leading manufacturer and supplier of RF, microwave and millimeter wave products, announces the release of their new 5 Bit, 8 Bit and 10 Bit broadband PIN diode digital step attenuators with performance up to 40 GHz depending on the configuration. These programmable, variable step attenuators are commonly used in electronic warfare, military and space communication systems, radar and test and measurement applications.

Pasternack's new digital step attenuators come in 30 dB and 60 dB values and have attenuation step resolution of 0.25 dB to 1 dB depending on the model. These programmable RF attenuators from Pasternack offer excellent attenuation accuracy and flatness over a broad frequency range of 0.3 GHz all the way up to 40 GHz. Insertion loss ranges from 4 dB to 8 dB and P1dB (power) ranges from 10 to 20 dBm depending on the chosen unit. These new variable attenuators meet MIL-STD-202F standards for shock, vibration, altitude, humidity and temperature and are constructed using a durable, but slim line housing, measuring only 0.5" thick.

The new high precision PIN diode digital attenuators from Pasternack offer fast and reliable switch speeds and high linearity. The lower frequency 0.03 to 18 GHz digital step RF attenuators are equipped with female SMA connectors, while the high frequency units reaching 40 GHz use female 2.4mm connectors. The power control connector for each unit is a 15 PIN Micro-D-Female connector.

"Our latest addition of PIN diode digital step attenuators provide our customers an off-the-shelf solution previously not available for these types of high reliability products where long lead times can exceed 8-12 weeks," explains Michael Rachlin, Director of Product Management at Pasternack. "We are continually expanding our active RF component offering to provide our customers a true one-stop-shop for all their RF requirements." The new digitally programmable step attenuators are in-stock and available to ship from Pasternack today.

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...
