RFMW , Ltd. announces design and sales support for a new 7-bit, 31.75dB digital step attenuator from Peregrine Semiconductor. The PE43704 offers an extremely wide operational frequency range of 9kHz to 8GHz. DC blocking capacitors are not required if DC voltage is not present on the RF ports. Even with this large bandwidth, the PE43704 maintains excellent monotonicity over the entire frequency range. Peregrine’s PE43704 handles up to 31dBm of instantaneous power with a CW power rating of 28 dBm. 0.25dB steps, 1.8V/3.3V control logic and an IIP3 of 61dBm make this an ideal step attenuator for multiple applications. The PE43704 comes in a 5x5mm QFN package.
