RF Attenuators

RF Attenuators

Voltage Controlled Attenuators target wireless and wired markets.

Covering frequency range of 50-4,000 MHz, RFSA2013 voltage controlled attenuators (VCAs) operate from 5 V power supply, while RFSA2023 units require 3 V supply. Monolithic VCAs also feature third order intercept point of greater than 50 dBm over 30 dB gain control range. Internal temperature compensation allows for stable attenuation profile over operating temperatures from -40 to +85°C....

Variable Attenuators come in manual and motorized versions.

Manual UVA-800-M and motorized UVA-800-CONEX ultrafast variable attenuators feature thin film polarizers that protect against exposure to contaminants. Polarizers are used in conjunction with half-waveplate to provide adjustable intensity ratio splitting of S- and P-polarized outputs, both of which have polarization contrast ratios over 1:450. Motorized attenuator includes rotational stage with...
