An attenuator is an electronic device that reduces the power of a signal without appreciably distorting its waveform.
Fixed Attenuators are available in 10 different connector types and in a frequency range of DC to 50 GHz with attenuation of 0 to 60 dB and power handling from 0.5 to 1000W..
Fixed value attenuators, called “attenuator pads” are used mainly in radio frequency (RF) transmission lines to lower voltage, dissipate power, or to improve the impedance matching between various mismatched circuits.
In measuring signals, high power attenuator pads are used to lower the amplitude of the signal a known amount to enable measurements, or to protect the measuring device from high signal levels that might otherwise damage it.
