At the heart of the digital attenuation solution is a series of USB/TTL controlled MMIC digital attenuators and Ethernet controlled rack mountable subsystems that are suitable for a multitude of RF and microwave applications up to 6 GHz. The USB/TTL controlled MMIC digital attenuators, Model 4205 Series, are available in three attenuation configurations.
Aeroflex / Weinschel offers a comprehensive product line of power dividers and power splitters. Many of these standard products were designed for particularly demanding broadband requirements, SWR, and high power system applications. They have a wide selection of connector types and offer frequency express shipment on select models.
Aeroflex / Inmet, a division of Aeroflex Incorporated, a wholly owned subsidiary of Aeroflex Holding Corp., has announced a new distribution agreement with Microwave Components Inc., (www.microwavecomponentsinc.com), headquartered in Stuart, FL.
Aeroflex / Weinschel’s Model 4201-63 MMIC digital attenuator operates over the 0.4 to 6 GHz frequency range and provides an attenuation range from 0 to 63 dB in 1 dB increments. This attenuator has excellent repeatability and performance with built-in TTL interface.
The 153 Series operates in the DC to 40 GHz frequency range and is available in 0 to 70 dB in 10 dB steps and 0 to 110 dB in 10 dB steps. Other features include low insertion loss and excellent repeatability, life of 5 million operations, compact rugged construction and light weight.
This specialized subsystem is used to simulate the connectivity between a mobile unit running along a line of 3 base stations spaced from 250 to 1000 meters apart. The test subsystem is able to simulate the variation of the RF signal from the base stations reaching the mobile when the mobile is moving at speeds of up to 250 km/h.
Aeroflex / Weinschel’s 8310 and 8311 series programmable attenuator units represent a new concept in programmable attenuation for bench test and subsystem applications. Standard 8310 series designs house and control various Aeroflex/Weinschel programmable attenuator Models (3200T, 150T, and 4200 Series) via front panel controls or standard communications interfaces including GPIB (IEEE- 488) and RS-232/RS-422 /RS485.
Aeroflex / Weinschel offers a series of 6 GHz relay switched programmable attenuators (Models 3406 & 3408) that are specifically designed for wireless/cellular, RF simulation/emulation & communication test applications. This series is available in many standard attenuation ranges and cell configurations (0 to 55 / 1 dB, 0 to 103/1 dB and 0 to 55.75 / 0.25 dB).
This line of intelligent programmable step attenuators with a built-in digital interface are designed to simplify the control and integration of these devices into subsystem and bench applications. This series of programmable step attenuators is designed for use in automatic test equipment and OEM systems operating in the dc to 6 GHz frequency range. These models are available in many standard attenuation ranges and cell configurations.
Aeroflex / Weinschel offers a series of 6 GHz relay switched programmable attenuators that are specifically designed for wireless/cellular, RF simulation/emulation & communication test applications. Other features include choice of attenuation ranges and steps (0 to 55 / 1 dB, 0 to 103/1 dB and 0 to 55.75 / 0.25 dB).
