Pasternack, an Infinite Electronics brand and a leading provider of RF, microwave and mmWave products, has expanded its portfolio of step attenuators for use in high reliability applications requiring precise control of signal levels, including precision measurements, prototyping and characterization product systems and instrumentation.

The new step attenuators feature a maximum VSWR of 1.4:1, a maximum insertion loss of 1 dB and attenuation accuracy of +/- 5 dB, making them well-suited for high reliability applications requiring accurate control of attenuation values.

Additional performance characteristics for these new step attenuators include high power and wide coverage with a 2 W power rating and an operating frequency range up to 18 GHz. To address a wide variety of applications, they provide attenuation step sides ranging from 1 dB to 99 dB and SMA and N-type connectorized designs.

“This new series of step attenuators ensures our customers attain reliable performance for their extreme precision applications,” said Steven Pong, senior product manager.

Pasternack’s new step attenuators are in-stock and ready for immediate shipment with no minimum order quantity.
