Application Notes for Microwave Attenuators
Millimeter Wave Attenuators Selection Guide
Herley wideband millimeter-wave attenuators are available in three configurations.
Model 1959 is current-controlled, while the Model D1959, which incorporates a hybrid driver, is voltage-controlled with a linearized transfer function of 10 dB per volt.
The digitally-controlled Model 3499 provides 0.03 dB resolution (11 bits) and switching speed of less than 500nsec.
Each of the three models operates over the full frequency range from 18-40 GHz with a dynamic attenuation range of 50 dB.
|FREQUENCY RANGE (GHz) ||Attenuation|
|Continuously variable, current controlled Attenuator |
|Continuously variable, voltage controlled Attenuator |
|Digitally Programmable Attenuator |
