High Frequency Rotary Attenuators
Two 18 GHz models have joined Midisco's MDC2017 series of Rotary Attenuators. Each is supplied with SMA jacks, and offer excellent flatness and VSWR. Model MDC2017-HF9 covers 9 dB in 1-dB steps, with an accuracy of ± 0.5 dB to 12.4 GHz, and ± 0.75 dB to 18 GHz. VSWR is 1.7:1 maximum. Model MDC2017-HF60 provides 60 dB of attenuation range in 10-dB increments. Accuracy is ± 0.5 dB or 2% to 12.4 GHz, and ± 1.0 dB or 4% to 18 GHz. Maximum VSWR is 1.8:1.
Insertion loss for each model is 1.5 dB maximum, while average and peak power is 2 watts and 200 watts respectively for both models. Each is supplied with index stops, knobs and mounting hardware.
