RFMW (San Jose, CA) has announced design and sales support for a new 7-bit, 31.75dB digital step attenuator from Peregrine Semiconductor. DC blocking capacitors are not required if DC voltage is not present on the RF ports. Even with this large bandwidth, the PE43704 maintains excellent monotonicity over the entire frequency range. The PE43704 comes in a 5x5mm QFN package. Features include:
- The PE43704 offers an extremely wide operational frequency range of 9kHz to 8GHz.
- Up to 31dBm of instantaneous power with a CW power rating of 28 dBm. 0.25dB steps.
- 1.8V/3.3V control logic.
- IIP3 of 61dBm.
