Attenuator Relays Work in 50-O Systems
Attenuating RF signals, Teledyne Relays’ GA152 Series switchable attenuator relays operate in 50-O systems over a frequency range from DC to 5 GHz. The single-section components use a uni-frame motor design, have an internally-matched thin-film attenuator pad in a “Pi” configuration, and come in a fixed increment of 20 dB. The ESD-resistant devices exhibit vibration resistance of 10 g at 500 Hz, shock resistance of 30 g (6-ms half sine), internal cleaning techniques, flat amplitude vs. frequency response, and stable attenuation vs. temperature. The 0.11-oz products consist of a hermetically-sealed enclosure, gold plating, and metal contacts.
