The TT9 SMT series is a new DC to 20 GHz wideband surface mount fixed attenuator series optimized to provide performance and power to applications in the defense market. The TT9 offers a power handling capability of 500mW while maintaining excellent impedance matching in an SMT package. It offers outstanding performance for high frequency applications, both fixed and temperature variable designs in the same footprint, and is ideal for the exacting needs of the defense market, specifically for radar, communication, and electronic warfare applications. The TT9 SMT series has undergone significant qualification testing with proven results of robust performance in extended durations and extreme environments. In addition, the RF performance has been characterized on the company’s test fixtures with evaluation boards and s-parameters available upon request. These devices have been noted for their excellent performance and small size, measuring only 0.070 x 0.060”. The TT9 wideband fixed attenuator handles 500mW of input power and is available in dB values from 0 to 10 dB in 1 dB increments. The same footprint is also offered in a temperature variable version, the WTVASMTF series, for ultimate design flexibility.
