Fairview Microwave has increased its portfolio of step attenuators for instrumentation, precision measurements, prototyping and characterisation production system and other applications needing precise control of signal levels.

The new step attenuators provide attenuation accuracy of +/-5dB, making them excellent for high-reliability applications needing accurate adjustment of attenuation values. Further outstanding performance characteristics for the step attenuators include 1dB maximum insertion loss and a maximum VSWR of 1.4:1.

These high-reliability step attenuators provide wide coverage and high power with an operating frequency range up to 18GHz and a 2W power rating. They offer SMA and N-type connectorised designs and attenuation step sides varying from 1dB to 99dB depending on the model.

“Fairview Microwave’s expansion of step attenuators guarantees our customers achieve reliable performance for their extreme precision applications,” said Steven Pong, senior product manager.
