MACOM’s MAATSS0017 is a 0.5 dB step GaAs
MMIC digital attenuator with 15.5 dB attenuation
range in a lead-free QSOP-16 (SSOP-16) package.
It requires external DC blocking capacitors on the
RF ports, positive supply voltage and five individual
bit control voltages.
The MAATSS0017 is particularly suited where high
attenuation accuracy, low insertion loss and low
intermodulation products are required. Typical
applications include base stations, wireless data,
and wireless local loop gain level control circuits.
The MAATSS0017 is fabricated using MACOM’s
GaAs 1.0 micron process. The process features full
chip passivation for increased performance and
