Fairview Microwave Broadens Line of Programmable Attenuators

New Attenuators Cover Broadband RF, Microwave, mmWave Frequencies

IRVINE, Calif. – Fairview Microwave, an Infinite Electronics brand and a leading provider of RF, microwave and millimeter-wave products, has released a new line of programmable attenuators engineered for test and measurement, R&D, electronic warfare and electronic countermeasures applications.

Fairview’s innovative series of programmable attenuators covers broadband RF, microwave and mmWave frequencies ranging from DC to 40 GHz. They provide greater flexibility and programmability by allowing different values of RF signal attenuation on demand.

These new high-performance attenuators are available in TTL, USB or relay-controlled options. They also feature switching speeds of 0.35 microseconds and +/- 0.7 dB attenuation accuracy.

Additionally, they offer SMA, N-Type and 2.92 mm female connector options with attenuation ranges from 31 dB to 95 dB with 0.5 dB and 1 dB step sizes.

Designed with compact, rugged, military-grade coaxial and an operational temperature range of -40 degrees to +85 degrees Celsius, these programmable attenuators are highly dependable in hazardous environmental conditions.

“Fairview’s latest lineup of broadband programmable attenuators is ideal for test and measurement applications. Designers can leverage flexibility with TTL, USB or relay-controlled options as well as a variety of attenuation ranges, multiple step sizes, greater coverage and high switching speeds,” said Tim Galla, Product Line Manager.

The new programmable attenuators are in-stock and ready for immediate shipment with no minimum order quantity. For product inquiries, contact Fairview Microwave at +1-972-649-6678.

How SHP in plastic packaging addresses 3 key space application design challenges

Sponsored by Texas Instruments

TI’s SHP space-qualification level provides higher thermal efficiency, a smaller footprint and increased bandwidth compared to traditional ceramic packaging. The common package and pinout between the industrial- and space-grade versions enable you to get the newest technologies into your space hardware designs as soon as the commercial-grade device is sampling, because all prototyping work on the commercial product translates directly to a drop-in space-qualified SHP product.
