LDA-608V-2 Product

LDA-608V-2

200 – 8000 MHz Frequency USB Programmable Digital Attenuator

The Lab Brick LDA series of Digital Attenuators bring affordability, functionality, reliability, and simplicity to the microwave test bench. The LDA products range from 6 MHz to 40 GHz with input level tolerance to 2 Watts and step size as small as 0.1 dB.

 

The LDA-608V-2 offers both USB and Ethernet interfaces. The USB port uses a native HID interface to avoid the difficulties inherent in using older serial or IEEE-488 interfaces implemented over USB. As a result, Lab Brick users can get to work faster without having to install kernel level drivers, and Lab Brick devices can be easily used on any system that supports USB HID devices, including low-cost embedded computers using Linux or similar operating systems. The Ethernet interface is configurable for Static IP or DHCP with the ability to assign the HTTP port for extra security.

 

The LDA-608V-2 Digital Attenuator is a highly accurate, bidirectional, 50 Ohm step attenuator with 2 independently controlled attenuator paths. The LDA-608V-2 provides calibrated attenuation from 200 to 8000 MHz with an amazing step size of 0.1 dB and typical accuracy <0.25 dB over 60 dB of control range. The attenuators are easily programmable for fixed attenuation, swept attenuation ramps and fading profiles directly from the included Windows or macOS Graphical User Interface (GUI). Alternatively, for users wishing to develop their own interface, Vaunix supplies LabVIEW drivers, Windows API DLL files, macOS DYLIB files, Linux drivers, Python examples, and more.
