Measuring 0.125" × 0.250" × 0.015", State of the Art’s MTA1225 Series multi-tap attenuators offer standard attenuation values of 1 dB, 3 dB, 6 dB, and 10 dB on a single chip. VSWR for all 4 values is <1.500:1 with attenuation tolerance of ±0.500 dB or 10%, whichever is greater. The chips eliminate the use of multiple attenuator devices in attenuation switching functions. The units suit low frequency multiple signal processing applications, providing multiple attenuation levels when used in conjunction with a high frequency switch or a pin diode. The attenuators are constructed using a high stability thick film resistor element on alumina with wire bondable or solderable terminations. Pricing is under $1.90 in production quantities.
