Teledyne Relays Announces Series GA152 Ultraminiature Attenuator Relays
HAWTHORNE, Calif. (November, 2008) - Teledyne Relays has introduced the Series GA152 family of highly repeatable, ultraminiature broadband attenuator relays for attenuating RF signals in 50-ohm and 75-ohm systems over a frequency range from DC to 5 GHz.
The low profile and small grid spacing of the GA152 relays makes them ideal for use when packaging density is a prime consideration. The GA152 relays offer a both a normally closed low-loss, bypass path and an attenuation path. The built-in functionality eliminates the need for additional external resistors.
These single-section, switchable attenuator relays have an internal matched thin film attenuator pad in a "Pi" configuration. Relays are available with a fixed 20 dB attenuation value. Other values ranging from 1 to 16 dB are available upon request.
The GA152 relays feature high repeatability (±0.1db), high resistance to electrostatic discharge, flat amplitude versus frequency response, high isolation between control and signal path, stable attenuation versus temperature and excellent phase linearity.
The GA152 relays incorporate a unique uni-frame motor design that provides high magnetic efficiency and mechanical rigidity. Minimum mass components and welded construction provide maximum resistance to shock and vibration.
The relays are manufactured with advanced cleaning techniques to assure internal cleanliness. They feature gold-plated, precious metal contacts, which provide excellent intermodulation performance. The GA152 is RoHS compliant.
The GA152 hermetic canister measures .375 x .510 x .340 (including ground shield) inch (9.53 x 12.96 x 8.64 mm) and weighs .11 ounce (3.2g).
