AVX’s new RF/Microwave SMT Attenuator Series (AF) is manufactured with the highest quality materials for reliable and repeatable performance. These devices are constructed with Aluminum Nitride (AIN) and are available in a standard EIA 0603 case size. The AF Series exhibits excellent performance characteristics for the most demanding RF/Microwave applications The AF series provides virtually flat loss over a broad frequency spectrum. Thin film metalization provides for very stable characteristics over temperature and time. Its balanced PI design provides even current distribution and accurate attenuation characteristics from DC to 20 GHz. It is designed to meet a wide range of RF and microwave large and small signal level applications. The AF is ideal for impedance matching, input padding, signal level tuning, and many other critical RF/Microwave applications. The AF is rated highest power in class and is suitable for microstrip and CPW applications.

The non-magnetic termination is available providing a range of attachment options such as eutectic die-bonding, conductive epoxies, and soldering. The AF is fully compatible with high speed automated pick-and-place processing.

Note: Consult Factory for other attenuation values, termination styles and case sizes.
