Original Press Release:
Microwave Precision Fixed Attenuator
Mini-Circuits is recognized as the first and most reliable worldwide source for electronic design engineers. RF microwave component solutions from DC to 40 GHz with over 10,000 models to choose from. An extensive line of RF products for satellite, industrial Oem, cellular, PCS , radar and communications applications and more. Announcing a new rugged package precision surface mount attenuator. The model RCAT is a 50Ω 2W fixed suface mount attenuator family with a range from DC to 20 GHz.
Some dynamic features that makes this new model RCAT attenuator the model of choice; Exceptional power handling of 2W, Wide band width DC to 20 GHz, Miniature size 2.25 mm x 2.25 mm x 1.1 mm Ceramic package, and Highly reliable and repeatable performance.
RCAT attenuators are fixed value absorptive attenuators. The highly precision and repeatable monolithic attenuator chip is processed using the most advanced semiconductor processing techniques. The Cu filled through-die via’s and Cu metallization on the backside provides a very low thermal resistance path to dissipate the attenuated power. The attenuator chip is packaged in an LTCC hermetic package utilizing fully automated and highly reliable manufacturing processes.
These componets are RoHS compliant and perfect for wideband military applications as well as test and measurement equipment. Thermally optimized design can operate reliably at much higher input power as compared to similar devices.
