HITTITE Microwave Corporation, represented in Australia and New Zealand by ASD Technology , has introduced a new digital attenuator designer’s kit, the HMC-DK004.
The HMC-DK004 includes samples of nine of Hittite’s most popular positive control digital attenuator MMICs.
The kit includes nine evaluation boards (assembled and tested), one for each digital attenuator part number, which enables the designer to test each enclosed sample.
The designer is encouraged to refer to the Application Circuit section of the product data sheet before applying power to the evaluation board. Data sheets and a CD for each of the samples are enclosed within the kit.
Hittite’s complete line of GaAs MMIC digital attenuators are offered in the industry standard MSOP8, MSOP10, QFN 3mm x 3mm (LP3), QFN 4mm x 4mm (LP4), QSOP16 and SOT26 packages, and are targeted to mobile/3G, Fixed Wireless, CATV, MMDS, WiMAX, WiBro, Microwave Radio and Test Equipment applications from dc to 13GHz.
These digital attenuators are suitable for use in RF gain control loops, level setting, calibration and cancellation applications.
