New line of low-frequency coaxial 3 and 4 GHz attenuators from Pasternack Enterprises Inc., Irvine, Calif., is specially suited for in-the-field uses and other general-purpose applications where costly stainless steel designs and high performance are not required.
The fixed attenuators can be ordered with combinations of SMA and N connectors. This line of 50 ohm RF microwave attenuators operate to a maximum frequency of 4 GHz depending on the configuration and come in 1, 2, 3, 6, 10, 15, 20, 30, and 40 dB attenuator varieties. A total of 63 directional and bi-directional models are available. All are RoHS and REACH compliant.
They have peak power ratings ranging from 5 to 200 W, depending on the design.
