Corpus Christi, Tex.TT electronics IRC Advanced Film Division has developed a high-power attenuator and surface-mount transmission line terminator.
Designated the PAT3060P series attenuator and RFTF series terminator, both devices feature low VSWRs at high frequencies. The PAT3060P series attenuator and RFTF series terminator are intended for high frequency and high power applications, including RF power meters, RF and microwave power amplifiers, radar, satellites, avionics, wireless communications, RF power sources and RF/microwave test instruments.
The PAT3060P high power attenuator features a frequency range from DC to 10GHz with a VSWR of less than 1.3 at 10GHz. Attenuation values include 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 16 and 20dB. The attenuator is rated
to 10W when heatsinked (1.5W without a heatsink). Impedance is 50ohms,
with an operating temperature of -55°C to +125°C.
The RFTF series high frequency terminator is available with power ratings to 250W. Stray capacitance is <1.0pF at 250W and operating frequency ranges from DC to 3GHz, with a VSWR of less than 1.1 at 3GHz. DC Resistance is 50ohms with tolerances to ±1%, ±2% and ±5%. The operating temperature range is from -55°C to +155°C.
Pricing: The PAT3060P attenuator starts at $10.50 each in quantities
of 50 pieces, and the RFTF series terminator starts at $8.75 in quantities of 100 pieces.
Availability: Lead time is six weeks for the PAT3060P and eight weeks for the RFTF.
Datasheets: PAT3060P and RFTF.
