Pasternack Expands Line of Programmable Attenuators

New Attenuators Offer Broadband RF, Microwave and mmWave Coverage

IRVINE, Calif. – Pasternack, an Infinite Electronics brand and a leading provider of RF, microwave and millimeter-wave products, has released a new series of programmable attenuators designed to meet the needs of electronic warfare, test and measurement, and electronic countermeasures applications.

Pasternack’s new programmable attenuators offer flexibility and programmability by producing different values of RF signal attenuation on demand. These high-performance attenuators provide +/- 0.7 dB attenuation accuracy and a switching speed of 0.35 microseconds.

The comprehensive selection of programmable attenuators comes in TTL, USB or relay-controlled options, and they include SMA, N-Type and 2.92 mm female connector options.

Pasternack’s attenuators feature wide coverage with broadband RF, microwave and mmWave frequencies ranging from DC to 40 GHz. Their attenuation ranges from 31 dB to 95 dB with 0.5 dB and 1 dB step sizes.

Additionally, these programmable attenuators are designed with compact and rugged military-grade coaxial packages and an operational temperature range from -40 degrees to +85 degrees Celsius.

“Pasternack’s innovative lineup of broadband programmable attenuators offers designers flexibility with TTL, USB, or relay-controlled capabilities. The comprehensive selection of attenuation ranges and step sizes in addition to wide coverage, precise dB accuracy and high switching speeds make these attenuators ideal for test and measurement applications,” said Tim Galla, Product Line Manager.

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

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.
