State College, PA — State of the Art (SOTA) has announced the addition of the Filtenator®, a clean attenuator that uses an integrated filter to eliminate high frequency signals, to its high frequency product line. Key features include a cut-off frequency that can be varied between 5.5 and 8.5 GHz; standard attenuation values of 1, 3, 6, and 10 dB; and a VSWR of less than 1.5:1 for all four attenuation values with attenuation tolerance less than ±1 dB. Measuring 0.150- x 0.120- x 0.015-inches these attenuators are available with wire bondable or solderable terminations.
Filtenator's chip design provides an advantage over fixed chip attenuators by filtering the high frequency harmonics to deliver a cleaner signal. To make the concept transparent to existing chip attenuator users, the geometry of the Filtenator including the dimensions of the termination pads are kept identical to the company's standard 1512 attenuator.
The attenuators are manufactured at the company's ISO 9001 and AS9100 manufacturing facility located in State College, PA. Reliability is ensured through proven processes and rigid quality controls. In addition, customer specific applications can be accommodated, including optional high reliability screening or custom testing.
