This 50 Ohm broadband fixed attenuator was designed for wireless applications to reduce the amount of power delivered in a transmission line without introducing much noise or distortion. Model series 357-021-XXX* has an operating frequency range of DC – 40 GHz. Standard attenuation values are 1 – 6, 10, 15, 20 and 30 dB. Maximum VSWR is 1.30:1 from DC to 18 GHz and 1.40:1 from 18 to 40 GHz. The operating temperature range is -65°C to +125°C and the RF connectors are 2.9mm male / 2.9mm female. Additional applications include test equipment, telecommunication systems, base stations, radar applications and defense programs. We have an application note available in the support section of our website.
