IMS Releases 20 W Chip Attenuator for High Power Applications
International Manufacturing Services Inc. (IMS), a manufacturer and supplier of high quality thick film resistors, terminations, attenuators, splitters, planar dividers and planar filters to the electronics industry, announces the availability of its high power 2010 size chip attenuator. The VGX-2010WA features wraparound terminals for solder or epoxy attachment and will dissipate 20 W at a 100°C baseplate temperature. Standard impedance is 50 ohm and attenuation values to 30 dB are available including 0.5 dB increments. Achievable VSWR is 1.3:1 to 12 GHz depending on implementation and attenuation accuracy starts at ±0.2 dB. These attenuators are especially suited, but are not limited to, RF and microwave applications.
