Crystek Microwave has introduced a new line of attenuators, the Crystek CATTEN series. Ranging from 1- to 20-dB signal attenuation, Crystek's CATTEN models are designed in a rugged SMA housing for easy in-line connection and operation in test equipment, RF lab use and other embedded applications. Every attenuator is made in the U.S.A. and subjected to rigorous quality testing before leaving the factory.
The frequency of Crystek's attenuators ranges from DC to 3 GHz. These units provide 1 W of power dissipation (0.5 W for 15 dB and 20 dB models) and impedance of 50 Ohms. Tolerance matching is used to provide superior temperature tracking to individual components. The attenuator's operating temperature range is -40° to +85°C.
