Attenuators

  • Bias
    Bias tees are all about power. No entity on our planet, be it human or machine, can run without some sort of source of energy. There is no perpetual motion machine, so power is a constant concern, w....
  • RF Attenuators
    RF attenuators are used to reduce signals, which is actually a very valuable attribute when it comes to RF systems. Just as lack of signal strength can present problems, so too can an overabundance o....
  • Test Systems
    Test systems are among the most important components in the RF development industry. In fact, these systems often seem to be as technologically advanced as the devices that they test! A lot of time,....
  • RF Termination
    RF termination devices allow for a given transmission to stop. While such an aim sounds quite simple, it's important to realize that the failure to put an end to a given signal can have undesirable r....
  • Cellular Systems
    Cellular systems have gone through incredible changes in just a few short years. Where once cell phones were large and bulky, new models are smaller and sleeker than we ever could have imagined. Cel....
  • Step Attenuators
    Step attenuators are wonderful for systems that require varying levels of signal attenuation at different times. These attenuation units have proven to be both accurate and easy to use. Many recent ....
  • Combiners
    Combiners are great tools for improving the quality of RF transmissions. You've heard, I assume, the phrase, "Two heads are better than one." Well, in the case of RF systems, two signals can be bett....
  • Variable Attenuators
    Variable attenuators offer increased options for RF attenuation. Unlike their "fixed" counterparts, variable attenuators can be manipulated to offer different amounts of resistance to RF signals. Su....
  • Fixed Attenuators
    Fixed attenuators zero in on a given level of attenuation and deliver it, transmission after transmission. A fixed attenuator is less versatile than a variable attenuator, though some have postulated....
  • RF Switching
    RF switching devices are a bit limited in terms of mass production, and it's all because of the "experts." Many RF professionals are so well versed in the relevant subject matter that they are easily....
