IRVINE, Calif.—High-power RF fixed attenuators recently introduced by Pasternack feature durable 2.4mm connectors and are engineered to deliver reliable and precise attenuation in high-frequency environments, according to a release from Pasternack.

Pasternack, an Infinite Electronics brand, is a major provider of RF, microwave, and millimeter-wave products. Its new attenuators are reported to offer “exceptional performance and are designed to meet the demands of modern RF applications.” With frequency capabilities up to 50 GHz, they suit applications from telecommunications to aerospace, defense, and research and development, the company said.

“Pasternack’s latest high-power fixed attenuators exemplify our commitment to providing innovative solutions,” said Pasternack Product Line Manager Steven Pong, in the release. “They will help our customers achieve superior performance and reliability in their RF applications.”

Among the key features that set the fixed attenuators apart are the 2.4mm connectors that ensure secure and efficient connections in high-frequency applications. The 2.4mm interface is said to offer durability and low insertion loss, increasing its appeal for demanding RF systems. The attenuators are also reported to provide a broad range of attenuation levels, including 1, 2, 3, 6, 10, 20, and 30 dB, allowing for precise signal control and management. This versatility is crucial in achieving optimal performance in RF circuits, according to Pasternack.

Designed to handle demanding RF power levels, the attenuators offer maximum power ratings of up to 5 watts (CW), ensuring reliable and consistent performance even in high-power applications. They are specified at 50 GHz, suiting them for advanced RF systems that operate at ultra-high frequencies, the company said.
