New 0805 Thermopads® for Commercial Applications - AN7  Series

The AN7 is an SMT planar style chip design. This new AN7 offers a small 0805 package size for TVA line and has excellent frequency response from DC to 6 GHz. The AN7 is suitable for high volume, pick & place and is an excellent choice for Telecom and WiMax applications.

The AN7 variable attenuator is currently available in designs of 1 through 6dB in one dB increments with temperature attenuation coefficients (TCA) of -.003, through -.009, dB/dB/deg C over an operating temperature range of -55 to +125 ºC. This cost effective TVA handles 100mW of input power, requires no bias or control voltages and generates zero distortion. The planar style chip size is 0.080” x 0.050” (2.03mm x 1.27mm). This product is delivered on tape and reel and is RoHS compliant.
