MACOM's MAAVSS0006 is a GaAs MMIC voltage variable absorptive attenuator in a lead-free SOT-25 surface mount plastic package. The MAAVSS0005is ideally suited for use where variable attenuation, fine tuning, and very low power consumption are required. Typical applications include radio, cellular, GPS equipment and automatic gain/level control circuits. The MAAVSS0006 is fabricated using a mature 1-micron GaAs MESFET process. The process features full chip passivation for increased performance and reliability.
