SkyworksLogoSkyworks has introduced a new family of general purpose gallium arsenide (GaAs) attenuators with excellent distortion performance for various types of linear applications including UMTS, WCDMA, WiMAX and WLAN. These GaAs digital single-positive-control step attenuators are also designed for base station transmitter and receivers, and can be used in radio frequency identification (RFID) transceivers.

Targeted at original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) building any type of receiver or modem, these broadband, low-insertion loss attenuators are built in small packages of only 3 x 3 millimeters (mm). The bilateral radio frequency (RF) ports allow input and output. In addition, an external control voltage of only 2.7 to 5.5 volts (V) is required.
