Attenuator comes in face-down taping configuration.
Press Release Summary:
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
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.
Since 1974, IMS has been supplying the electronics manufacturing industries with highest quality thick and thin film chip resistors, terminations, attenuators, couplers, thermal management devices and other RF and Microwave components.
