This family of attenuators sets new standards for size and performance. High attenuation accuracy and low SWR are achieved through the use of miniature thin-film attenuation cards composed of high-stability tantalum nitride film on a sapphire substrate. Insertion loss performance is outstanding with less than 2 dB of loss at 26.5 GHz and only 2.4 dB at 40 GHz. The compact size of the units, 35% smaller than the 8495/7 (26.5 GHz) family, allows for easy integration into instruments and ATE systems.
Options specify the attenuator voltage and RF connectors.
