MCE/Weinschel's design approach uses a highly adaptable platform that allows configuration of the step attenuator to the customer's requirements using either a remote controller or through front panel control. These units provide a flexible, easy to program, low cost solution for bench test/calibration setups and subsystem applications. Other features include available in 0-15/1 dB or 0-31/1 dB configurations; relative versus nominal attenuation step functions; DC to 13.0 GHz operation, high accuracy and reliability; power handling up to 100 watts average; designed to interface with standard communication interfaces; and built-in monitoring for switching input power into the load in case of fan failure.
