New 0 to 30 dB Millimeter Wave Continuously Variable Waveguide Attenuators from Fairview Microwave Operate to 110 GHz. Fairview Introduces Five Waveguide Attenuators Allowing Engineers to Test Signals Across Q, U, V and W Bands.

Fairview Microwave Inc., a supplier of on-demand microwave and RF components, introduces a new line of in-stock and ready to ship high precision waveguide variable attenuators operating to 110 GHz. Fairview’s new 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 their application.

The new waveguide attenuators from Fairview come in 5 unique models covering broad frequencies from 33 GHz to 110 GHz in five bands. These millimeter wave waveguide attenuators are commonly used in industries such as aerospace, defense, telecom, industrial, instrumentation and medical devices for applications including high efficiency RF/microwave transmissions, bench top testing, radar, satellite communications and military communications testing.

Design engineers will commonly use these types of variable attenuators when they are designing and testing their concepts in a lab environment. Fairview’s millimeter wave variable waveguide attenuators allow the designer to assess how a system will perform at various signal strengths and ultimately determine the optimum signal performance of the system. Another key feature of these attenuators is that the attenuation level is adjusted using a micrometer, enabling repeatable and rapid re-setting to different attenuation levels. These millimeter wave waveguide attenuators also exhibit low insertion loss ranging from 0.5 to 1 dB and flat performance across a wide band as well as across various attenuation levels.

“Our new offering of high precision waveguide variable attenuators helps further Fairview’s commitment to provide the largest source of in-stock waveguide components in the industry,” explains Brian McCutcheon, Vice President and General Manager at Fairview. “Advanced waveguide components of this nature often require extended lead times upwards of four months to deliver. We have eliminated this wait time for our customers who can now purchase these items on-demand as needed.”

Fairview’s new waveguide variable attenuators are in-stock and available to ship today. You can view these new waveguide components by visiting directly. Fairview Microwave can be contacted at +1-972-649-6678.
