pSemi Corporation announces the expansion of its digital step attenuator (DSA) portfolio with two new high-performance DSAs, PE43610 and PE43614. Featuring industry-leading attenuation accuracy, the PE43610 and PE43614 DSAs support the entire 9 kHz–13 GHz and 9 kHz–45 GHz frequency ranges, respectively. Ideal for 5G test-and-measurement applications, these DSAs exemplify pSemi’s high-performance capabilities at mmWave frequencies, maintain monotonic response across the entire frequency range and feature high linearity and fast switching time.
PRODUCT FEATURES- The PE43610 and PE43614 DSAs cover a 31.5 dB attenuation range in 0.5 dB and 1 dB steps, and they are capable of maintaining 0.5 dB and 1 dB monotonicity throughout their frequency ranges. These DSAs also deliver glitch-safe attenuation state transitions, meaning no increased power spike during a state transition.
AVAILABILITY- The PE43610 and PE43614 are offered in a 24-lead 4 x 4 mm LGA package. Volume-production parts, samples and evaluation kits are available now. For 1K-quantity orders, the PE43610 (6 bit, 50-ohm) is $15.17 each; the PE43614 (6 bit, 50-ohm ) is $48.53 each.
