Attenuator Chip: TS0503F

Source: Smiths Interconnect

The TS05XX Series chip attenuator is designed with increased power handling and requalified to higher power levels. The increased power handling capability is based on individual device attenuation values as follows: 0-1 dB attenuators are rated at 5 W, 2-3 dB rated at 2 W, 4-10 dB rated at 1 W, and 11-20 dB rated at 0.75 Watts.  It can be used for mobile networks, broadcast, high power amplifier, military, and instrumentation applications.

These TS0503F attenuators may be used in new applications where additional margin is required. For example, the TS0503F is a 3 dB attenuator operating to 18 GHz and capable of handling 2 Watts of RF input power. The TS05XX series attenuators are available in various, surface mount formats including planar, single wrap (W1), triple wrap (W3) and wire bondable gold (WB1).
