Skyworks Solutions Inc. has introduced a family of ultra-wideband fixed attenuator pads with a unique through-die via and split ground configuration that provide improved high frequency return loss, attenuation tolerance, flatness and power handling performance. Attenuation pad values from 0 to 30 dB, and operation to 40 GHz, make these devices well suited for broadband power-level adjustment applications in microwave and millimeter-wave radios, radars, EW/ECM equipment and test equipment. In addition, these novel attenuator die solutions assist microwave communications equipment OEMs and microwave system designers with the manufacture of higher performance hybrid microcircuit assemblies for both military and commercial applications.
