High Reliability Chip Attenuators HR05 Series

EMC Technology’s miniature size attenuators with extended broadband frequency operation from DC to 18 GHz. The product is rated for 100 miliwatts of input power with attenuation values from 0 dB to 20 dB. The resistive element is thin film space approved Tantalum Nitride (TaN) offering superior electrical performance and mechanical integrity.  They are  available with various metallization styles and plating options including thick film gold for wire bonding applications, RoHS compliant lead free silver over nickel plating, 60/40 low temperature solder plating or 60/40 solder fused finish for easy reflow processing.

The HR [High Reliability] series of the TS05 is a DC to 18 GHz rated part and maybe purchased with group A, B, or C testing based on Mil-PRF-55342 and tested to TP-8965.

The new HC [High reliability Commercial space] products are 100% tested with a reduced test plan but still provides high reliability assurance for the high volume program.  The HC series of the MTVA is a DC to 18 GHz rated part and maybe purchased with group A, B, or C testing based on a modified Mil-PRF-55342 and tested to TP-9191.
