RFMW announced design and sales support for Smiths Interconnect TSX Series chip attenuators with extended frequency range. The TSX series chip attenuators span DC to 50 GHz with 1 to 3 W of input power handling capability based on individual device attenuation values as follows: 0 to 1 dB attenuators are rated at 3 W, 2 to 3 dB rated at 2 W, 4 to20 dB rated at 1 W. Q-Band performance addresses new markets and applications including instrumentation, radar, satellite and 5G systems. In transmitters, low VSWR increases output power potential while the small, 0604 package size, ideal for pick and place manufacturing, reduces board space requirements.
