PDVAN-8018-60-8-OPT25dBM

PMI Model No. PDVAN-8018-60-8-OPT25DBM is an 8-Bit digitally programmable attenuator that operates over the frequency range of 8.0 to 18.0GHz. This model offers low loss of 3.6 dB typically and an attenuation range of 60 dB. This model was designed to handle input power levels up to +25 dBm CW under operating conditions and signal levels up to +30 dBm CW without damage. The attenuation flatness over frequency is less than ±1.6 dB at full attenuation. The switching speed is less than 800 ns. This model is supplied in a housing that measured 2.0” x 1.8” x 0.5” and is supplied with SMA female connectors.
