Broadband Attenuator Relays

High repeatability in a tiny package

This new series of ultraminiature relays are designed to attenuate RF signals in 50 and 75 systems over a range from dc to 5 GHz. They have a low profile and small grid spacing, measuring .375 x .510 x .295 inches (9.53 x 12.96 x 9.49 mm), and only weighing .11 oz (3.2g). Leads measure a minimum of 0.7 inches (17.78 mm). The relays have a normally closed low-toss, bypass path and an attenuation path. The single-section relays have an internal matched thin film attenuator pad in a "Pi" configuration. They come in a fixed 20 dB attenuation value, but other values in a range of 1-16 dB are available upon request. They have a high repeatability (+/- 0.1db), high electrostatic discharge resistance, a uni-frame motor design for magnetic efficiency and mechanical rigidity, and gold-plated, precious metal contacts. Price is $35.44 each in 500-unit quantities. Teledyne Relayshttp://rbi.ims.ca/4928-597
