Pasternack has introduced a new family of in stock continuously variable waveguide attenuators featuring performance up to 110 GHz. Offered in five unique models, the millimeter wave waveguide attenuators that are used in aerospace, defense, industrial, telecom, instrumentation and medical industries for applications such as high efficiency RF/microwave transmissions, test benches, SATCOM, MILCOM and radar testing.
The devices cover a broad frequency range, from 33 GHz to 110 GHz in five bands. The ultra-high frequency variable waveguide attenuators allow designers to see how the system will perform at various signal strengths and can also be used to determine the optimum signal performance of the system.
The continuously variable waveguide attenuators can vary the attenuation level from 0 to 30 dB over the specified band allowing the user to dial in the attenuation level needed for the application. Attenuation levels are adjusted using a micrometer, enabling repeatable and rapid re-setting to a variety of attenuation levels. These attenuators also boast flat performance across a wide band low insertion loss.
“With addition of these new in-stock continuously variable waveguide attenuators, the company continues its strategic objective of providing customers around the globe access to hard-to-find RF, microwave and millimeter wave components available for same-day shipping,” says Mark Blackwood, Passive Components product manager at Pasternack. “With lead times that commonly exceed 8 to 12 weeks in this industry, Pasternack now offers a comprehensive portfolio of innovative waveguide components from stock.”
