RF Digital Step Attenuator: TEA13000-12
RFMW, Ltd. announces sales support fora USB controlled, RF, digital step attenuator from Telemakus. The TEA13000-12 is based on an analog circuit driven by a 16-bit ADC providing extremely fine control down to ~0.03 dB step size. This fine resolution of the TEA13000-12 is needed for applications requiring cancellation or automatic level control (ALC) functions.
Covering a broad bandwidth, the Telemakus TEA13000-12 spans 100MHz to 13GHz with 2dB typical insertion loss and 30dB dynamic range. Not much larger than a standard thumb drive, the TEA13000-12 is the smallest USB controlled DSA on the market and weighs less than an ounce. Its small size belies its functionality as the device uses on-board flash memory to store a user friendly graphical interface that runs on Windows based PCs.
The internal memory also stores a user guide and example APIs for use in designing customer specific ATE systems that are easily configured using additional Telemakus USB controlled products such as synthesized signal generators, power meters, switches, amplifiers and vector modulators.
Each Telemakus USB controlled test device comes with a 3 foot long, high retention force USB cable, T-CABLE-3, which is factory recommended for consistent, repeatable operation.
