Product Overview KAT models are a series of absorptive fixed attenuators fabricated using highly reliable and repeatable GaAs MMIC IPD* process. The models operate from DC up to 43.5 GHz. They have outstanding attenua- tion accuracy and flatness while maintaining excellent VSWR throughout the entire band. The models can also handle input power up to around 2W, depending on each value, which makes this model series an ideal choice for a wide range of applications. Feature Advantages Wideband operation, From DC to 43.5 GHz Supports a wide array of applications including 5G, wireless infrastructure, microwave communications, satellite, defense and aerospace, medical broadband and optic ap- plications. Small Size and simple to use (2 mm x 2 mm) As a single chip solution, the KAT series occupies less board space than a lumped ele- ment approach, minimizes component count and ensures repeatable performance over wide frequency range. Wide range of nominal attenuation values (0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,12,15,20 & 30) Small increment offering enables circuit designer to change attenuation values without motherboard redesign making the KAT series ideal for select at test application. MCLPTM Package Low Inductance, repeatable transitions, excellent thermal path make the KAT series an ideal solution as an alternative to “do it yourself” lumped element-based approach. KAT-SERIES
