Description
The SKY12407-321LF is a GaAs pHEMT two-bit attenuator I/C.
The device is provided in a 3 x 3 mm 12-pin Quad Flat No-Lead
(QFN) package.
The SKY12407-321LF is particularly suited for 100 Ω differential
systems for which high attenuation accuracy, low insertion loss,
and low intermodulation products are required.
The attenuator’s differential input and output impedance is 100 Ω.
The device is controlled by two positive DC voltage control pins.
The differential attenuator paths are controlled together and can
be in either an insertion loss or a 12 dB attenuation state. In a
differential system, the attenuator presents a 100 Ω impedance,
but can be used as two single-ended attenuators, each with a
50 Ω impedance.
A functional block diagram is shown in Figure 1. The pin
configuration and package are shown in Figure 2. Signal pin
assignments and functional pin descriptions are provided in
Table 1.

Note:
Exposure to maximum rating conditions for extended periods may reduce device reliability. There is no damage to device with only one parameter set at the limit and all other
parameters set at or below their nominal value. Exceeding any of the limits listed here may result in permanent damage to the device.
CAUTION: Although this device is designed to be as robust as possible, Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) can damage this device. This device
must be protected at all times from ESD. Static charges may easily produce potentials of several kilovolts on the human body
or equipment, which can discharge without detection. Industry-standard ESD precautions should be used at all times.
Electrical and Mechanical Specifications
The absolute maximum ratings of the SKY12407-321LF are
provided in Table 2. Electrical specifications are provided in
Table 3.
Typical performance characteristics of the SKY12407-321LF are
illustrated in Figures 3 through 6.
The state of the SKY12407-321LF is determined by the logic
