Fixed Chip Attenuators

Chip attenuators are available in various termination types and finishes for applications at frequencies up to 40 GHz and beyond. We offer both fixed attenuators and temperature variable attenuators.

Wraparound termination type C is used at frequencies < 4 GHz. At frequencies > 4GHz, inductive losses associated with the wraparound degrades performance. Flip chip mounting (film side down) reduces the inductive losses while providing a solder fillet that is readily inspected.

The planar terminations of the A termination type minimize inductive losses at higher frequencies (> 4 GHz) when the device is flip chip soldered (film side down).
