Relays for broadband applications

Teledyne Relays has introduced the RoHS Compliant Series GA152 family of highly repeatable, ultraminiature broadband attenuator relays for applications in 50 and 75 Ohm systems over a frequency range from DC to 5GHz. In the event of a loss of operating power, the relay defaults to the bypass path condition. These single-section, switchable attenuator relays have an internal matched thin film attenuator pad in a PI configuration and are available with a fixed 20dB attenuation value, with other fixed values ranging from 1 to 16dB available upon request.
