Pasternack Launched Waveguide Packaged, Voltage Variable Attenuators

Pasternack New Waveguide Packaged Attenuators Cover mm-Wave Frequency Bands from 26.5 to 110 GHz

Pasternack now provides six new models of Waveguide Packaged, Voltage Variable Attenuators covering popular mm-wave frequency bands ranging from 26.5 GHz to 110 GHz.

Pasternack’s new waveguide packaged, attenuators utilize GaAs MMIC semiconductor technology and offer 0 dB to 30 dB attenuation tuning adjustment with a voltage range of 0 Vdc to 5 Vdc. Designers will find these broadband, voltage variable attenuators useful in receive chains to tune mm-wave signal levels to optimize system-level performance.

Voltage Variable Attenuators

The Attenuators are available in rugged, compact, military-grade, gold-plated aluminum package designs that operate across −10 to +60 degrees Celsius. They support a variety of waveguide sizes and can withstand exposure up to 95% relative humidity and altitudes of up to 10,000 feet.

This portfolio of broadband, waveguide, Voltage Variable Attenuators features a fast switching speed of 25 nsec typical, insertion loss ranges from 4 to 6 dB, and high-input power handling up to +23 dBm.

“Our new line of high-reliability, waveguide packaged, voltage variable attenuators is ideal for downlink or receive channels where adjusting/tuning signal levels to optimize system-level performance is necessary. These continuously variable waveguide attenuators are in-stock and available to ship the same day ordered,” said Tim Galla, Product Manager.

Pasternack’s new waveguide packaged Attenuators are in-stock and ready for immediate shipment with no minimum order quantity. For inquiries, contact Pasternack at +1-949-261-1920.
