Q & A with Vaunix: Lab Brick Attenuators in W-Fi Applications

In our Q & A blog series, we’ve addressed some of the most important and technical questions about our Lab Bricks. We hope these answers give you a better understanding of how our products work.

 

Q. What is the best way to use Lab Brick Series Attenuators to cover both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz Wi-Fi bands?

 

A. As the 802.11ac standard is increasingly becoming the successor to IEEE 802.11n, many customers have asked about the most prudent way to use our attenuators to cover both bands. We have two products for this application each providing attenuation in 0.5-dB steps. The LDA-602 covers 6 to 6000 MHz with 63 dB of attenuation, maximum input power of +22 dBm, and switching speed of 70 ns. The LDA-602E covers 400 to 6000 MHz with 120 dB of attenuation, handles +30 dBm, and switches in 4 microseconds.
