Keysight (Agilent) 355E

Programmable Step Attenuator, DC to 1 GHz, 0 to 12 dB, 1 dB steps
Contact us for pricing and availability.
The Agilent 355E programmable step attenuator provides precision step attenuation in 1 dB steps from 0 to 12 dB. Attenuator sections are inserted and removed by cam-actuated microswitches which keep lead lengths short. This design minimizes stray capacitances and inductances, and keeps phase shift to a minimum. The Agilent 355E is a compact and rugged unit in which the component parts are rigidly positioned and well-shielded so that neither stray pickup nor signal leakage is a problem. It may be connected with the 355F in series to provide precision attenuation in 1 dB steps from 0 to 132 dB. Either terminal may be connected as input or output. Remote programming with rapid switching is simple via a 7-pin connector .
