RF fixed attenuators lower the amplitude of a signal (attenuate) by specific amount and can be used in a wide variety of applications. These attenuators are used when signal levels need to be reduced to protect measurement equipment or other circuitry, to extend the range of power meters and amplifiers, and to impedance match circuits by reducing the VSWR seen by adjacent components. RF attenuators can prevent signal overload in amplifiers, receivers and detectors, adjusting the signal level to optimal power range.
Few RF components are as commonly used as fixed coaxial attenuators, and L-com carries one of the largest in-stock varieties and ships them same day. Download the product datasheet for additional information and specifications.
