Digitally controlled attenuators are the key components in communication, radar, instrumentation, and automatic test systems. Broad bandwidth, high dynamic attenuation range, low insertion loss, high control resolution and fast control speed are key considerations in nearly all applications.
This paper shows the implementation, features, operation, and 5 G application of Bidirectional voltage variable digital attenuator with 0-62 dB attenuation range and how it is used to test 28 GHz 5 G signal.
