MELVILLE, N.Y. – Comtech PST Corp. in Melville, N.Y., is introducing the model LA01-001 digital attenuator for RF and microwave applications in the UHF band.
The design operates over the 400 to 500 MHz frequency range for use in military or commercial applications. The attenuator provides 0 to 60 decibels of range. Switching speed is very fast when attenuation needs to be changed.
Features of this RF and microwave device include TTL controlled attenuation level; 4 bit attenuation control; 60 dB attenuation range; amplitude/phase matched state to state; excellent attenuation accuracy; fast switching speed; +5 and -15 volts DC input.
The digital attenuator has maximum input power of 20 dBm; voltage standing wave ration (VSWR) of 1.4:1 max, any state; insertion loss of 1.4 dB max; attenuation range of 0 to 60 dB, 6 dB steps; attenuator accuracy (to 36 dB) of plus-or-minus 0.25 dB max; switching speed of 1 microsecond max; and impedance of 50 ohms.
The device operates in temperatures of 0 to 50 degrees Celsius at the baseplate; in humidity of 0 to 95 percent non-condensing; operates in chock and vibration conditions per Mil-Std-810F; and operates in altitudes as high as 10,000 feet.
The unit measures 5.9 by 2.5 by 1.35 inches and weighs 15 ounces. For more information contact Comtech PST online at https://comtechpst.com.
