General Information
In this section of the catalog, each Fixed Coaxial Attenuator is outlined utilizing individual data sheets containing
product features, specifications, and outline drawings. These data sheets are preceded by a quick reference
guide to help you select the Fixed Coaxial Attenuator(s) that fits your needs. The page number for each Fixed
Coaxial Attenuator data sheet is given in the quick reference guide.
From the company’s very first DC - 1 GHz tee attenuator, came the technology that enabled the design of the first
DC - 5 GHz, the first DC - 10 GHz, and the first DC - 18 GHz coaxial attenuators. These designs led to the
development of the distributed resistor card attenuator element, which is the basis for most all attenuators
manufactured today from DC - 60 GHz. Until the original patents expired a few years ago, most major attenuator
manufacturers in the U.S. were licensed under one or more Weinschel Engineering, Co., patents.
Also MIL-DTL-3933 Qualified - Aeroflex / Weinschel is a QPL supplier of Fixed Attenuators. Most Aeroflex /
Weinschel Fixed Coaxial Attenuators can be supplied according to customer specified testing, environmental or
military or government specification requirements (page 41).
Attenuator Sets of Aeroflex / Weinschel Fixed Attenuators are also available...see page 40.

Fixed Coaxial Attenuators
Frequently Asked Questions about Fixed Coaxial Attenuators....
What are the advantages of Weinschel's fixed
attenuators?
What dB values are available besides those in the
catalog?
Aeroflex / Weinschel low power fixed attenuators feature a
combination of advantages over other designs:*
Most any dB value is available; however you should consult
your local sales representative or the factory for design availability for a particular dB value for the selected model. There
is generally an additional charge for non-catalog values.
1. Most Aeroflex / Weinschel attenuators feature injection
molded dielectric for better center pin captivation and
alignment. Injection molded dielectric also eliminates the
need for the epoxy hole "stake" as seen in other designs.
This epoxy hole in other designs is subject to RF leakage
and movement when exposed to environmental extremes
and prolonged use.
2. Aeroflex / Weinschel fixed attenuators have a proprietary
resistor element, fired at 950°C for superior long term stability over temperature, power and time. The attenuator
element is trimmed for precise custom attenuation values.
3. Aeroflex / Weinschel fixed attenuators have no solder contacts. They feature spring loaded plunger contacts to the
resistor cards that provide expansion tolerance over wide
temperature and power ranges.
4. Aeroflex / Weinschel fixed attenuators are made with high
quality materials and machined to very close tolerances.
The result is a design that stands up to severe environmental and multiple matings.
5. High power designs feature special high temperature
dielectric support beads.
Does Aeroflex / Weinschel offer high reliability fixed
attenuators?
Yes, most Most Aeroflex / Weinschel
Fixed Coaxial Attenuators can be
supplied according to customer specified
testing, environmental or military or
government specification requirements.
Hi-Rel units can be laser-marked and are manufactured from
materials which have a TML of less than 1% and CVCM less
than 0.1%.
What is a bidirectional and unidirectional attenuator?
All Aeroflex / Weinschel attenuators are bidirectional unless
they are specified as unidirectional in the power rating specification. Bidirectional means the maximum specified power
can be applied to either the input or output of the attenuator.
Unidirectional means the maximum specified power can only
be applied to the input port of the attenuator. Unidirectional
designs allow for smaller overall package sizes and reduced
costs. All our attenuators have maximum average and peak
pulse input power limits. The average power limit decreases
linearly as the ambient temperature increases. If these limits
are exceeded, burnout of the attenuator element results or
its calibration may be permanently changed. When used
within its specifications, an attenuator is an indispensable
component in measurement and system applications.
*Most designs, some features may not apply to certain low cost attenuator
designs.
Can Aeroflex / Weinschel provide attenuators for space
applications?
Yes. Aeroflex / Weinschel fixed attenuators are being used
on a wide variety of military and commercial communication
satellites. "S" level fixed attenuators can be provided for any
dB value up to 40 dB from dc to 52 GHz. Aeroflex /
Weinschel has recently introduced Models 32K (page 30)
and 32L (page 31) standard fixed attenuators that operates
from dc to 42 or 52 GHz. These attenuators offer superior
electrical and mechanical design that is
ideally suited for space applications.
Aeroflex / Weinschel’s use of precision
connectors, injection molded captivation
of connector contacts (no solder or contact fingers) and very precise and stable
resistors result in a superior electrical and
mechanical design that is ideally suited for
space applications.

Unique Test Requirements & Data
Does Weinschel offer any attenuators with IM3
specified?
Yes Aeroflex / Weinschel has recently introduced new as
well as updated models specifically for applications requiring
low intermodulation distortion. Models are available with the
low IM options are...24, 33, 40, 45, 46, 47, 48, 48, 53, 57, &
58. Refer to the page 15 for a product line overview or the
specific data sheet for IM3 details.
How is the temperature or power coefficient
specification applied?
These specifications tell how much the attenuation will
change when the ambient temperature or input power
changes. First multiply the catalog temperature coefficient or
power coefficient by the ambient temperature range or input
power range to which the attenuator will be exposed. Then
multiply that number by the dB value of the attenuator. The
result is the maximum change in attenuation than can be
expected over the ambient temperature range or power
range that was specified.
How is the attenuator power rating calculated?
An attenuator will handle
specified power at ambient
temperatures as specified in
the catalog. No special fan
cooling is required. At
higher temperatures the
power rating is calculated
by using catalog specifications and a straight line
graph (Example shown
above). For instance the
power rating of the Model
48 attenuator is 100 watts to
25°C and 10 watts at
125°C. Using linear graph paper, plot a straight line between
these two points. This plot shows that the power rating at
75°C is approximately 56 Watts.
30 dB attenuation values. Each attenuator is tested in 1 GHz
intervals to minimize interpolation error. The
attenuator sets are available in stainless steel
type N (Model 1 & 44), and 3.5mm (Model 56)
connectors. Custom sets with other connector
type and higher power sets are
also available upon request.
Refer to page 66 for more details.
What is Third-Order
Intermodulation Distortion?
(IM3) Intermodulation distortion
(IM) consists of the spurious signals which
result from the mixing of nth order frequencies in the non-linear elements of a component. Third order
intermodulation distortion is of particular interest because
third order products typically represent the highest level
distortion appearing close to the desired signal, and as such
the highest level non-filterable distortion. Third order IM level
(IM3) is tested by injecting two pure tones of equal magnitude (f1 and f2) into the component to be tested. The third
order IM products will appear in the output spectrum at the
frequencies 2f1-f2 and 2f2-f1. These products are characterized by defining their level (in dBc) relative to the
fundamental output tones at either f1 or f2.
Applications....
Aeroflex / Weinschel Attenuators are used in a wide variety
of applications in the electronic field for the control or measurement of radio frequency energy. Attenuators are used as
accurate standards in the measurement of loss or gain by the
RF substitution method. They are used as a means of
extending the dynamic range of measuring equipment such
as power meters, field intensity meters, spectrum analyzers,
and amplifiers, or to prevent overloading of receivers and
amplifiers. They also reduce, by masking, the effects of variable or mismatched impedances on such circuit elements as
oscillator, T-junctions, mixers, etc.
Fixed Attenuators can satisfy almost any requirement
involving a reduction in power. Attenuators designed and
manufactured by Aeroflex / Weinschel are very stable and
remain precision calibrated over wide ranges of humidity,
temperature, and other ambient conditions for long periods
of time.
Does Aeroflex / Weinschel offer attenuators sets or attenuation test kits?
Aeroflex / Weinschel offers a variety of attenuation standard
sets consisting of precision designed fixed attenuators.
These sets are ideally suited for standards and research laboratories as well as production, quality control, and
inspection departments. Aeroflex / Weinschel attenuation
sets are available in either 3, 6, 10, 20 dB or 1, 3, 6, 10, 20,

Fixed Coaxial Attenuators
Understanding Temperature & Power Coefficient in Attenuators
By the Components Engineering Staff @ Aeroflex / Weinschel
Article written By Jimmy Dholoo, VP Engineering & Rob Sinno, Design Engineer
Temperature Coefficient of Resistance, TCR, is a well-known
parameter in the Electronics Industry. Power Coefficient of
Resistance, PCR, is not such a familiar term. Manufacturers
seldom provide PCR specifications for their resistors. TCR and
PCR are usually expressed in parts per million per degree
(ppm / °C), or parts per million per watt (ppm / W). Applying PCR in
an example, a 10-Watt, 100-ohm resistor with a PCR of
+/- 200ppm/W could change by +/- 0.2 ohms when subjected to
10 Watts of average power at ambient temperature
(100Ωx10Wx200x10−6 /W).
Attenuators in their discrete form are usually a combination of chip
resistors in a Pi or T network, and the type of resistors selected for
such networks depends on the desired frequency, temperature and
power handling requirements. The individual chips in such a
network might either be thin- or thick-film resistors. For higher
frequency applications, attenuators usually take on a distributed
form, with a resistive sheet of thick-film or thin-film terminated with
suitable metalization, Figure 1. The most common material for
thick-film resistors is ruthenium dioxide. Popular thin film materials
are nichrome, tantalum nitride and tin oxide.
Case 1: TCA of Fixed Attenuators
All of Weinschel’s fixed attenuators are of the distributed type and
of a proprietary thin-film Tin Oxide composition. The tin oxide is
deposited on a ceramic substrate at 930°C via a chemical vapor
deposition process and terminated with gold metalization.
Depending on the product type, the substrate could be Alumina,
BeO or ALN. The vast fixed attenuator family covers a frequency
range of DC to 40 GHz, and the power handling ranges from as low
as 2 watts to 1000 watts. The TCA for every fixed product is
specified as 0.0004dB/dB/°C because the predominant factor
determining the TCA is the TCR of the tin oxide film. The substrate
material, the sheet resistivity and the mechanical contacts between
the connectors and the substrate and between the substrate and
the grounds do contribute to the overall TCA, but to a much lesser
extent. The TCA is usually measured at a power level low enough
so as not to cause any significant warming of the unit. Attenuation
is measured at various ambient temperatures over a specified
frequency range. The worst-case coefficient arrived at is based on
the maximum attenuation change over the frequency band.
Military Standard, MIL-A-3993 for fixed attenuators calls for a TCA
of 0.0004dB/dB/°C. Over a 100°C ambient temperature change, a
30 dB attenuator would change by a maximum of 1.2 dB at low
signal levels. In reality, the TCA of Weinschel attenuators is
0.0001dB/dB/°C. The maximum change would only be 0.3 dB on
a 30 dB attenuator, thus providing a significant guard band to the
user.
Figure 2 is a theoretical plot showing the attenuation variation on a
10 dB distributed attenuator as a function of the TCR of the
resistive thin-film at two temperature extremes, -75ºC and +125ºC.
It is interesting to note that the change in attenuation is rather small
over such a wide swing of both temperature and TCR. Figure 3 is
a similar plot of the impedance variation of the same attenuator and
this shows a significant change from the nominal 50-ohm impedance. Three obvious conclusions can be drawn from these plots:
•
As long as the shunt and series resistive elements of an
attenuator have the same TCR the attenuation will always
increase at DC, independent of the temperature and the
magnitude of the TCR. Distributed film attenuators will always
behave in this manner because the shunt and series sections
are formed from the same resistive film and therefore have the
same TCR. Discrete attenuator networks may not behave in this

Almost all the fixed and programmable attenuators offered by
Weinschel specify a Temperature Coefficient of Attenuation (TCA)
and a Power Coefficient of Attenuation (PCA) in the product data
sheets. Based on the inquiries we receive about the interpretation
of these specifications, it seems that some basic explanation is
necessary so the end user can correctly forecast the worst case
scenario for his system; i.e. what attenuation change might be
expected at temperature and power extremes.

manner because the discrete shunt and series chip resistors
may have different TCRs.
•
•
Since an increase in the resistance of the series element
increases the attenuation and an increase in the resistance of
the shunt element reduces the attenuation the overall change in
the attenuation is very small and far less than the change in the
individual resistors.
Materials with poor TCR figures will seriously impact the
impedance of distributed attenuators and significantly degrade
the SWR, with little effect on the DC attenuation.
Case 2: PCA of Fixed Attenuators
Though the specified TCA of all attenuators is the same, the PCA
varies across the product line since it is no longer just a function of
the tin oxide resistive film. It also depends on the substrate
material, metalization, packaging, heat sinking and forced cooling,
if any. The effect of high power/high voltage on this resistive film is
quite different from that of a temperature increase at low
voltages/low power. A detailed discussion of this is beyond the
scope of this article but it is important to note that this effect is a
function of the electrical stress in the film and will depend on the
dimensions of the resistive film, and so is a function of the size and
shape of the resistor. Also, it is worth clarifying that referring to this
high voltage effect as a “Power Coefficient” is misleading since the
rate of change of resistance with applied voltage is not constant
and the film exhibits some degree, albeit small, of non-linearity.
Switched Programmable attenuators typically comprise several
attenuator “cells”, usually in a binary sequence: 1 dB, 2 dB, 4 dB,
8 dB, 16 dB, 32 dB etc, Fig 4. These cells are selectively switched
ON from their `zero’ state, using DPDT relays for electromechanical models and PIN diodes, for solid state versions. Programmable
attenuators basically have two states, a zero state when the unit is
sitting in its minimum insertion loss position and an attenuate state
when the unit is sitting in any of the selected attenuation positions.
The interpretation of TCA for these products has at times raised
questions because there are two TCA figures associated with them.
The first is the Absolute TCA, which is derived from the total change
in any selected attenuation, between two temperatures at low
signal levels. The second is the relative or Incremental TCA.
Programmable attenuators are frequently installed in systems and
instruments to accurately control RF signal levels. Their insertion
loss in the ZERO attenuation position usually becomes part of the
overall system loss and is zeroed out in the normalization process.
What is important in such cases is the accuracy of the incremental
attenuation with reference to the normalized state and, therefore, it
is the Incremental TCA that is more relevant to the designer/user.
Incremental TCA is derived from the change in the incremental
attenuation state at two temperatures; i.e., the normalization of the
zero is carried out at both temperatures.
The blue plot in Figure 4 shows the change in the zero state
attenuation of an 8 cell electromechanical unit. It was generated by
first normalizing its zero state loss at room temperature and then
raising the ambient to 100°C. The major attenuation change over
temperature comes from the 8 relays. Typically a 75-degree
change causes a 0.5 dB change in the Zero insertion loss (0.063
dB per relay). For this unit, if normalization were carried out at
25°C, the 1 dB cell switched ON and the ambient raised to 100°C,
the 1 dB cell would read 1.5 dB at around 1.5 GHz. This would
yield the worst-case Absolute TCA of 0.0066 dB/dB/°C (0.5dB
/1dB/75°C). As a comparison, the red plot in Figure 4 shows that
the Incremental attenuation change of the 32 dB is only 0.05 dB at
about 2 GHz because we measure it at 25°C with one normalization and again at 100°C with another normalization. So all changes
due to the relays are masked and the worst-case Incremental TCA
works out to be 0.000021 dB/dB/°C (0.05dB/32dB/75°C). This
shows that the ruthenium based thick-film attenuators screened on
a ceramic substrate hardly change over this temperature range.
Almost all the temperature variance is therefore attributable to the
relay contacts.

PCA measurements are not easily made. Just as the TCA is
measured at a constant low power level with varying ambient
temperatures, the PCA must be measured at a constant ambient
temperature of 25°C with varying power and over the entire
operating frequency range. To carry out such measurements with
good accuracy requires a set of high-power, broadband bias tees
and good matching techniques. The test set-up is shown in the
MIL- A-3933 document.

From the Weinschel fixed attenuator product line, a typical 2 W
attenuator has a PCA of < 0.005 dB/dB/W, so a 30 dB unit would
change by less than 0.3 dB ( across the full frequency band, when
the incident power increases from, say, 10mW to 2 Watts.
Similarly, a 500W unit with a PCA of 0.0001dB/dB/W would change
by less than 1.5dB ( over its operating frequency band when the
incident power increases from a low level signal to the full 500
watts.
