April 18, 2014 - Attenuator A-0402WA is available taped face-down in pocket (IMS2652), which enables usable frequency range to be broadened and flattened. Face-down orientation places attenuator elements in same plane as surrounding circuitry, minimizing stray capacitance and inductance effects of wraparounds. Placement also aids in minimizing insertion loss and VSWR effects.

International Manufacturing Services (IMS) Announces Availability of Face-Down Taping for A-0402WA Attenuator

Press release date: April 8, 2014

Portsmouth, Rhode Island, USA -- International Manufacturing Services, Inc. announced today that the A-0402WA attenuator is now available taped face-down in the pocket. The part number for this orientation is IMS2652. This taping arrangement has previously been available for the A-0603 (IMS2533) and A-0805 (IMS1141) sizes. Now all three of the most popular sizes of the A-Series are available in both face up and face down arrangements.

While wraparound attenuators work extremely well in face up placement, the usable frequency range can be broadened and flattened by mounting the part face down. Face-down orientation places the attenuator elements in the same plane as the surrounding circuitry, thereby minimizing stray capacitance and inductance effects of the wraparounds. This placement also aids in minimizing insertion loss and VSWR effects.
