Pasternack, an Infinite Electronics brand and a provider of RF, microwave and millimetre-wave products, has released a new series of programmable attenuators designed to meet the needs of electronic warfare, test and measurement, and electronic countermeasures applications.

Pasternack’s new programmable attenuators offer flexibility and programmability by producing different values of RF signal attenuation on demand. These attenuators provide +/- 0.7 dB attenuation accuracy and a switching speed of 0.35 microseconds.

The comprehensive selection of programmable attenuators comes in TTL, USB or relay-controlled options, and they include SMA, N-Type and 2.92mm female connector options.

Pasternack’s attenuators feature wide coverage with broadband RF, microwave and mmWave frequencies ranging from DC to 40GHz. Their attenuation ranges from 31dB to 95dB with 0.5dB and 1dB step sizes.

Additionally, these programmable attenuators are designed with compact and rugged military-grade coaxial packages and an operational temperature range from -40 degrees to +85 degrees Celsius.

“Pasternack’s innovative lineup of broadband programmable attenuators offers designers flexibility with TTL, USB, or relay-controlled capabilities. The comprehensive selection of attenuation ranges and step sizes in addition to wide coverage, precise dB accuracy and high switching speeds make these attenuators ideal for test and measurement applications,” said Tim Galla, Product Line Manager.
