Fairview’s new PIN diode-based VVAs deliver accurate control and broadband flatness, allowing the output level to be continuously adjusted by changing analog voltage on the input control line. These VVAs are ideal for use with variable gain amplifiers, power level control, feed-forward amplifiers and automatic level control (ALC) circuits.
This product line is comprised of six models that support frequencies from 400 MHz to 18 GHz while providing low insertion loss and a wide dynamic range. These modules display exceptional VSWR over all attenuation levels and CW input power is rated up to +23 dBm. Rugged coaxial packaged assemblies are designed to meet MIL-STD-202 environmental test conditions that include humidity, shock and vibration.
