The attenuators are constructed using a high stability thick film resistor element on alumina with wire bondable or solderable terminations.
Construction material consists of either an alumina or beryllia body with a proprietary resistor element for optimum performance.
Constructed using a high stability thin film resistor element, these devices are available with attenuation values from 1 dB to 20 dB, and they are suitable for high frequency applications up to 20 GHz.
The termination resistor element, coaxial transmission line launch and impedance-matching network are mounted in a rugged aluminum housing.
The resistor element's film system, stability over time and temperature and even the decision to select a discrete device such as a chip resistor or a resistor network can make the difference between a circuit design success and a circuit design failure.
They use a Ru02 thick film resistor element with anti-leaching nickel barrier terminations.
These dividers are manufactured with an alumina (aluminum oxide) ceramic sandwich construction that offers exceptional thermal performance with good heat flow away from the resistor element, minimizing the temperature rise in the resistor due to power dissipation.
