Voltage Variable Attenuators

Voltage Variable Attenuator MMICs for K and Ka Band Designs

Custom MMIC designs custom and standard surface mount (SMT) packaged and die form absorptive RF / Microwave attenuators with GaAs technology to fit the needs of various high performance designs. With voltage-variable attenuation and ultra-wideband performance, these absorptive attenuators perform up to 40 GHz (K band) with excellent insertion losses. These RF / Microwave MMICs come with a 50 ohm matched design to eliminate the need for port matching, full passivation, and moisture protection for increased reliability. Chip size is as small as 2x2 mm.

Attenuator Frequency Bands

  • Millimeter-wave Attenuator Frequency Bands
    • K-band Attenuators (18 GHz to 27 GHz)
    • Ka-band Attenuators (27 GHz to 40 GHz)
    • Q-band Attenuators (33 GHz to 50 GHz *waveguide frequency band)

MMIC RF Attenuator Applications

  • Wireless Point-to-point (P2P) Radio
  • Wireless Point-to-multipoint (P2M) Radio
  • Transmitter-Receiver (TR) Modules for Wireless Communications and Radar
  • Military Radar Transmitters and Receivers
