The CMD279C3 is a positive controlled, wideband GaAs MMIC 5-bit digital attenuator housed in a leadless 3x3 mm surface mount package. Each bit of the attenuator is controlled by a single voltage of either 0 V or +5 V. The attenuator bit values are 0.5 (LSB), 1, 2, 4, and 8 dB, for a total attenuation of 15.5 dB. The CMD279C3 has a low insertion loss of 3.5 at 9 GHz and the attenuation accuracy is typically 0.2 dB step error. The CMD279C3 is a 50 ohm matched design which eliminates the need for RF port matching.

In addition to offering delivery from stock on our own evaluation boards for nearly all our die and packaged devices, Custom MMIC has also put nearly 30% of our devices into the X-Microwave block system. This drop-in simulation, prototyping, and production system enables efficient and expedient microwave and millimeter-wave circuit development and testing.
Custom MMIC strives to design all of our MMIC devices in a manner such that they can be readily chosen for your space application. We have an extensive history of successfully screening and qualifying our product to space applications per MIL-PRF-38534, MIL-PRF-38535, NASA INST standards and customer specific requirements. We collaborate with our customers to determine the appropriate screening and qualification based on their specific mission. Our space product screening and qualification are performed in-house and with approved partners. Whether you are looking for a space screened die, hermetically sealed packaged product or non-hermetic packaged product, Custom MMIC is prepared to help you address your qualification requirements
Design alternative parts have been engineered and manufactured to replicate the form, fit and function of the original part as closely as possible. The Design Alternative also offers the benefit of being significantly lower in price than the original device making these newer products perfect for new designs. Compare datasheets and see for yourself how you can still get world class performance in a more cost-effective solution.
