THIN FILM ATTENUATORS (MSAT SERIES)

Thin film chip attenuators and surface mount attenuators (SMD) from Mini-Systems

Mini-Systems, Inc. MSAT series discrete element Thin Film chip attenuators provide the design engineer with attenuators that are very accurate over operating frequencies from DC through 40 GHz. They offer the low noise, low stray capacitance and tight tolerance of Mini-Systems, Inc. Thin Film materials in compact sizes that make them ideal for applications where small footprints are required. MSAT series is offered in balanced pi or T-type styles.

An attenuator is a device that reduces the power of a signal without distorting its waveform. Attenuators are usually passive devices made from simple voltage divider networks. Switching between different resistances forms adjustable stepped attenuators and continuously adjustable ones using potentiometers. Used to lower voltage, dissipate power, or to improve impedance matching.

Attenuators can be found in applications measuring signals where a lower the amplitude of the signal is set at a known amount to enable measurements, or to protect the measuring device from signal levels that might damage it.
