Fiber Will Enable 5G and a Lot More

by Mark Hearn, Product Manager, Milestek It may seem ironic that the success of a next-generation wireless technology depends on the availability of a wired counterpart, but without adequate fiber-optic resources 5G simply will not be able to deliver its vast benefits. While that may not be a news flash for many, what may not […]

Wideband Digital Step Attenuator

ZX76-15R5A-PN+ is a coaxial digital step attenuator with an attenuation range from 0 to 15.5 dB in 0.5 dB steps and a wide frequency range from DC to 4 GHz. The device operates on a dual +3V/-3.3V supply and features a 5-bit parallel control interface. Its control lines are buffered by Schmitt triggers, allowing a […]
