MACOM's MAADSS0008 is a 1-bit, 15-dB step GaAs MMIC digital attenuator in a lead-free SOT-25, 5 lead surface mount plastic package. The MAADSS0008 is ideally suited for use where high accuracy, very low power consumption and low intermodulation products are required. Typical applications include wireless handsets, base stations, wireless LAN equipment, GPS receivers and any RF applications with automatic gain/level control circuits. The MAADSS0008 is fabricated as a monolithic GaAs integrated circuit using a mature PHEMT process. The process features full chip passivation for performance and reliability.
