Pasternack, a provider of radio frequency, microwave, and millimeter wave products, released a new line of RF attenuators with operating frequencies up to 18 GHz depending on the configuration.

These new fixed RF attenuators feature power ratings of 10 Watts, 25 Watts, 50 Watts, 100 Watts, and a peak power rating of 500 Watts. The 10-Watt and 25-Watt versions feature bi-directional operation, while the 50-Watt and 100-Watt models support directional operation. Additional features include VSWR as low as 1.2:1, flat RF response and performance, and an RFI-resistant design.

The attenuators are constructed with black anodized aluminum heatsink bodies and are designed with large cooling fins which aid in heat dissipation at high temperatures.
