Portsmouth, Rhode Island — International Manufacturing Services, (IMS), has made available a high power 0.375- x 0.250-inch (0.953- x 0.635-cm) size aluminum nitride chip attenuator. Designated the VGX-3725WA, it features wraparound terminals for solder or epoxy attachment and will dissipate 100 W at a 100 °C baseplate temperature.
Standard impedance is 50 ohm and attenuation values to 30 dB are available including 0.5 dB increments. Achievable VSWR is 1.3:1 to 6 GHz depending on implementation and attenuation accuracy starts at ±0.2 dB. These attenuators are especially suited, but are not limited to, RF and microwave applications.
