50GHz Attenuator Pads for High Power Chip and Wire

SemiGen SFAP series fixed attenuator pads from 1 to 30dB. DC to 50GHzRFMW, Ltd. announces design and sales support for thin film, fixed attenuator pads from SemiGen, Inc. SemiGen offers a series of fixed attenuators from 1 to 30dB in 1dB increments with flat frequency response from DC to 50GHz. The SFAP series feature precise resistor films and superior metallization resulting in consistent performance and reliability. Full side wraps connect the topside ground to the backside metallization for surface mount or on-board installation. Gold bondable top side contacts for the input and output make these ideal for standard RF/microwave assembly techniques. Power handling is 1 to 5 Watts CW. Return loss is >18dB to 14GHz and >16dB to 50GHz. Optimized for coplanar waveguide or microstrip PCB, the SFAP chip size is .030″ X .030″.
