Voltage Variable Attenuators from Fairview Microwave

Fairview Microwave’s voltage variable attenuators (VVAs) offer up to 60 dB of attenuation across a broad range of frequencies from 400 MHz to 18 GHz. These voltage variable attenuators are frequently used in applications such as electronic warfare, instrumentation, point-to-point and point-to-multipoint radios, fiber optic and broadband telecom, microwave radio and VSAT, military radios, radar, ECM, SATCOM and sensors, and R&D.

This product line is comprised of six models that support frequencies from 400 MHz to 18 GHz while providing low insertion loss and a wide dynamic range. These modules display exceptional VSWR over all attenuation levels and CW input power is rated up to +23 dBm. Each unit features a rugged coaxial package design to meet MIL-STD-202 environmental conditions.
