HIGHLIGHTS

  • Superior 0.03 dB insertion loss repeatability through the operating life of up to five million cycles.
  • Broad attenuation range of 0 to 101 dB, with 1 dB step.
  • High attenuation accuracy and flatness of +0.4 dB at 26.5 GHz.

The M9168C PXI programmable step attenuator module operates from DC to 26.5 GHz with a guaranteed 0.03 dB insertion loss repeatability for each section throughout the five million cycles operating life. Superior attenuation accuracy across a wide operating temperature range ensures precise measurements using a PXI hybrid platform. The M9168C PXI programmable step attenuator module enhances the measurement accuracy and flexibility of PXI-based RF and microwave test systems.
