60 dB Variable Attenuator

DiCon’s 60 dB Variable Attenuator is a TTL-driven component that sets attenuation levels in the 0 to 60 dB range. The attenuation level is set using a high-precision motor with either the I2C standard interface or a proprietary Step-Up/Step-Down interface.


60 dB Variable Attenuators can be used to adjust the power level in automated test systems. Applications include analog transmitter and receiver testing.
