Pasternack, an Infinite Electronics brand, has launched a new line of 10, 25, 50 and 100 W RF attenuators with operating frequencies up to 18 GHz depending on the configuration.

Pasternack now offers 31 high-power, fixed attenuators which offer attenuation levels of 3, 6, 10, 20, 30 and 40 dB. Additionally, in-series connector gender interfaces are available in male-female configurations with both SMA and Type-N connector options.

These new fixed RF attenuators boast power ratings of 10, 25, 50 or 100 W and a peak power rating of 500 W. The 10 and 25 W versions feature bi-directional operation, while the 50 and 100 W models support directional operation. Additional features include VSWR as low as 1.2:1, flat RF response and performance, and an RFI-resistant design.

The attenuators are constructed with black anodized aluminum heatsink bodies and are designed with large cooling fins which aid in heat dissipation at high temperatures.

“These new high-power RF attenuators are perfect for power limiting in both production and R&D applications, impedance matching and signal leveling inside RF test systems. By offering a wide selection of off-the-shelf options, we are able to satisfy nearly every RF attenuation application,” said Steven Pong, product line manager.

Pasternack’s new high-power RF attenuators are in-stock and available for same-day shipping with no minimum order requirement.
