MACOM’s MAAVSS0001 is a GaAs MMIC voltage
variable absorptive attenuator in a lead-free
SOT-25 surface mount plastic package. MACOM
fabricates the MAAVSS0001 with a proven
monolithic GaAs 0.5 micron gate process that
features full chip passivation for performance and
The MAAVSS0001 is ideally suited for applications
that require fine tuning, linear attenuation with
voltage, and very low power consumption.
Typical applications for the MAAVSS0001 include
automatic gain control circuits in satellite radio
receivers and other wireless receivers.
