Wide Attenuation Range: 37 dB
Die Size: 2.78 x 1.41 x 0.1 mm
General Description
The HMC985A is an absorptive Voltage Variable
Attenuator (VVA) which operates from 20 - 50 GHz and
is ideal in designs where an analog DC control signal
must be used to control RF signal levels over a 37 dB
dynamic range. It features two shunt-type attenuators
which are controlled by two analog voltages, Vctrl1
and Vctrl2. Optimum linearity performance of the
attenuator is achieved by first varying Vctrl1 of the
first attenuation stage from -5V to 0V with Vctrl2 fixed
at -5V. The control voltage of the second attenuation
stage, Vctrl2, should then be varied from -5V to 0V
with Vctrl1 fixed at 0V.
However, if the Vctrl1 and Vctrl2 pins are connected
together it is possible to achieve the full analog
attenuation range with only a small degradation in
input IP3 performance. Applications include AGC
circuits and temperature compensation of multiple
gain stages in microwave point to point and VSAT
radios.
