Pasternack’s new fixed RF attenuator

High-Power RF Attenuators Feature Wide Frequency Coverage

Nov. 8, 2019
Pasternack’s new line of RF attenuators offer operating frequencies of up to 18 GHz, depending on the configuration.

Pasternack has launched a new line of 10-, 25-, 50-, and 100-W RF attenuators with operating frequencies of up to 18 GHz, depending on the configuration. The company provides 31 high-power, fixed attenuators that offer attenuation levels of 3, 6, 10, 20, 30, and 40 dB. In-series connector gender interfaces are available in male-female configurations with both SMA and Type-N connector options.

The fixed RF attenuators offer a peak power rating of 500 W. The 10- and 25-W versions feature bidirectional operation, while the 50- and 100-W models support directional operation. Additional features include a low voltage standing wave ratio (VSWR) of 1.2:1, flat RF response and performance, and an RFI-resistant design.

The attenuators are constructed with black anodized aluminum heatsink bodies. They're designed with large cooling fins which aid in heat dissipation at high temperatures, says the company.

"These new high-power RF attenuators are perfect for power limiting in both production and R&D applications, impedance matching, and signal leveling inside RF test systems. By offering a wide selection of off-the-shelf options, we are able to satisfy nearly every RF-attenuation application," said Steven Pong, product line manager.

Pasternack's new high-power RF attenuators are in stock and available for same-day shipping with no minimum order requirement. For more detailed information, visit here.
