50Ω Up to 2W DC to 18 GHz
The Big Deal
• Exceptional Power Handling, Up to 2W
• Wide bandwidth, DC - 18 GHz
• Small Size, 2 mm x 2 mm
CASE STYLE: MC1630
YAT attenuators (ROHS compliant) are fixed value, absorptive attenuators fabricated using highly repetitive
MMIC processing including thin film resistors on Silicon substrates. YAT attenuator die contain through-
wafer Cu metallization vias to realize low thermal resistance and wideband operation. YATs are available
with nominal attenuation values of 0 to 10 dB (in 1 dB steps), and 12, 15, 20, and 30 dB. Packaged in tiny
2 mm x 2 mm MCLPTM package fits into tiny spaces.
Wideband operation, DC to 18 GHz
Small Size and simple to use
(2 mm x 2 mm)
Supports a wide array of applications including wireless cellular, microwave communi-
cations, satellite, defense and aerospace, medical broadband and optic applications.
As a single chip solution, the YAT series occupies less board space than a “T” or “Pi” pad
configuration, and ensures repeatable performance over wide frequency ranges.
High Power, Up to 2W
High power handling in a small size package.
Wide range of nominal attenuation values
0 to 10 dB (in 1 dB steps), and 12, 15, 20,
and 30 dB
Small increment offering enables circuit designer to change attenuation values without
motherboard redesign making the YAT series ideal for select at test application.
Low Inductance, repeatable transitions, excellent thermal path make the YAT series an
ideal solution as an alternative to “do it yourself” resistor based attenuators.
