A Voltage-controlled PIN Diode Attenuator Using an Accurate PIN Diode Model

This article presents a voltage-controlled PIN diode attenuator using an accurate PIN diode model that can precisely simulate the attenuation characteristics. After carefully investigating the problems with conventional PIN diode models, an accurate PI...
PIN diodes have been widely used in a variety of microwave and RF applications, including antenna switches, phase shifters and attenuators. PIN diode attenuators are used extensively in automatic gain control (AGC) and RF leveling applications. Most PIN diode attenuators control the attenuation characteristics through the forward bias current....
