Surface mount attenuator covers DC to 50 GHz

December 21, 2016 // By Julien Happich
SemiGen now offers a selection of fixed attenuators pads with an attenuation of 0 dB up to 100 dB.

These attenuator pads feature precise resistor films and superior metallization resulting in a flat response from DC to up to 50 GHz. Attenuator pads offer power handling from 1 W to 5 W continuous wave (CW) with minimum return losses of 18 dB up to 14 GHz and 16 dB from 15 GHz to 50 GHz. These attenuators are optimized for coplanar waveguide or microstrip PCB and microwave module assemblies.

SemGen’s advanced thin-film technology allows these parts to have full side wraps for surface mount or on-board installations with a chip size of 0.03”x0.03” on most of the designs.
