Corpus Christi, Tex. Based on its proprietary TaNFilm technology, a unique tantalum nitride film process, TT electronics IRC Advanced Film Division has developed a series of thin-film surface-mount attenuators capable of high frequency performance in a variety of wireless applications. Available in custom resistances for wireless applications such as satellite, radar and microwave data links, the highly stable TaNFilm material makes these attenuators a good choice for use in high reliability military and avionics applications.
In addition, the surface-mount capability makes the device suitable for designers looking for a small yet highly effective attenuator for almost any microwave circuit design, said Jerry Seams, IRC's applications manager.
The PFC attenuator series features an attenuation range of 1 dB to 20 dB (typically from DC to 6GHz), giving it the capability to manage signal amplitude over a broad spectrum in the high frequency range. Key specifications include impedance values of 50Ω and absolute TCRs of ±100ppm/°C. The package measures 0.024 x 0.063 x 0.126 inches.
Typical pricing for the attenuator series is $1.00 each in quantities of 5,000. Delivery is eight to nine weeks.
