Vaunix 8-Channel Digital Attenuator Covers 200 to 6000 MHz

8-Channel Digital Attenuator: LDA906V-8

January 25, 2019

Vaunix Technology Corp. is pleased to announce the release of their new 8-channel high resolution Digital Attenuator, LDA906V-8.

The LDA906V-8 Digital Attenuator is a highly accurate, bidirectional, 8-channel step attenuator. The LDA-906V-8 provides calibrated attenuation from 200 to 6000 MHz with an amazing step size of 0.1 dB and typical accuracy of < 0.25 dB over 90 dB of control range.  The attenuator is specifically designed for errorless attenuation transitions in ultra-high speed 5G, Wi-Fi and PTP networks.

Vaunix Lab Bricks use a native USB HID interface to avoid the difficulties inherent in using older serial or IEEE-488 interfaces implemented over USB. As a result, Lab Brick users can get to work faster without having to install kernel level drivers and Lab Brick devices can be easily used on any system that supports USB HID devices, including low cost embedded computers using Linux or similar operating systems. 

The Vaunix Windows Graphical User Interface (GUI) enables easily programmable fixed attenuation, swept attenuation ramps and fading profiles.  Alternatively, for users wishing to develop their own interface, Vaunix supplies LabVIEW drivers, Windows API DLL files, Linux drivers, Python examples and much more.
