CVD Diamond Attenuators

EMC Technology offers a line of CVD Diamond attenuators with extreme high power ratings. These attenuators may be used in applications from DC to 26.5 GHz and are ideal for applications requiring high power capability, broad frequency response and small, light-weight size. The CVD Diamond chip series are manufactured using all thin film construction and have a thin film gold finish that is both wire bondable and solderable. The “T” units have  a gold plated copper tab for ease of installation. The “FT” series units are equipped with a gold plated copper tab and integrated heat sink for ease of mounting.
 
Because of their total thin film construction they are ideal for peak power applications.  Standard chip and high reliability tested versions based on Mil-PRF-55342 are also available. Select from tape and reel or waffle packaging. These products are lead free, RoHS complaint and S-level approved. Standard available values are 1-10, 20 and 30dB.
