Wideband Module Used in Broad Range of Applications
A wideband variable attenuator module from Avago Technologies is intended for use in wireless infrastructure applications such as CATV, WCDMA, VSAT, WiMAX and cellular base station applications. The ALM-38140, which is a 50 MHz to 4 GHz PIN diode attenuator module, is housed in a miniature 3.8 mm by 3.8 mm by 1.0 mm multiple-chip-on board (MCOB) package with 6-pin configuration pads. The module does not require any external RF matching component to operate. Other features include: handling capabilities of P1dB>30dBm @ 1,900 MHz, linearity performance of IIP3: 60 dBm @ 1,900 MHz, and a dynamic range of 35 dB @ 1,900 MHz.
