State of the Art (SOTA) Inc. announces the addition of new multi-tap attenuators to its high frequency product line. The MTA1225 (0.125" x 0.250" x 0.015") multi-tap attenuators are available with wire bondable or a solderable terminations. Constructed using a high stability thick film resistor element on alumina, these devices are available offer four standard attenuation values on a single chip. Standard attenuation values are 1, 3, 6, and 10 dB. VSWR for all four values is less than 1.5:1, with attenuation tolerance +/- 0.5dB or 10% whichever is greater. The multi-tap attenuator chip was designed to eliminate the use of multiple attenuator devices in attenuation switching functions, thus reducing board space and inventory costs.
