Fairview Microwave, an Infinite Electronics brand and a leading provider of RF, microwave and mmWave products, has deepened its portfolio of step attenuators for instrumentation, precision measurements, prototyping and characterization production system and other applications requiring precise control of signal levels.

Fairview Microwave’s new step attenuators feature attenuation accuracy of +/- 5 dB, making them ideal for high reliability applications demanding accurate adjustment of attenuation values. Additional superior performance characteristics for the step attenuators include 1 dB maximum insertion loss and a maximum VSWR of 1.4:1.

These high reliability step attenuators offer wide coverage and high power with an operating frequency range up to 18 GHz and a 2 W power rating. They provide SMA and N-type connectorized designs and attenuation step sides ranging from 1 dB to 99 dB depending on the model.

“Fairview Microwave’s expansion of step attenuators guarantees our customers achieve reliable performance for their extreme precision applications,” said Steven Pong, senior product manager.
