New High Resolution 50 MHz to 18 GHz Programmable Digital Attenuator

Posted on Monday, October 01, 2018

We are excited to announce the release of a new high resolution digital attenuator, LDA-5018V.


Priced at $899.00, the  LDA-5018V digital attenuator is a highly accurate, bi-directional, 50-ohm step attenuator. It provides calibrated attenuation from 50 MHz to 18 GHz (VHF-, UHF-, L-, S-, C, X-, and Ku-band frequencies) with an exceptionally precise step size of just 0.1 dB, while offering typical accuracy of <1.0 dB over 50 dB of control range. This device is sized to fit into a single rack unit for ATE applications, is easily portable, and can operate multiple devices directly from a PC or self-powered hub.


Our Lab Brick programmable digital attenuators are easily programmable to accomplish fixed attenuation, swept attenuation ramps, and fading profiles directly from the included Graphical User Interface (GUI). Alternatively, for users wishing to develop their own interface, we supply LabVIEW drivers, Windows API DLL files, Linux drivers, Python examples, and much more.


LDA-5018V can be purchased online and currently has a 3-week turnaround. Up-to-date delivery status is available on our website. For application engineering assistance, and to discuss customization options, visit our support page to talk with our technical support team.
