American_Microwave_AttenuatorsmallAMERICAN MICROWAVE CORPORATION, INC. announces an improved programmable attenuator. This incorporates a new linearization circuit to enable fast and accurate attenuation switching. The new design focuses on quick settling and stable operation over temperature extremes. Switching between any attenuation level is typically settled within 1 dB in about 400ns.
