Description

The CGY2171XAUH/C1 is a high performance GaAs MMIC 6–bit Attenuator operating in L, S, C, and Xband.

The CGY2171XAUH has a nominal attenuation range of 31.5 dB in 0.5 dB steps. It covers the frequency range of 1 to 15 GHz and can be used in Radar, Telecommunication and Instrumentation applications.

The die is manufactured using OMMIC’s 0.18 μm gate length PHEMT Technology. The MMIC uses gold bonding pads and backside metallization and is fully protected with Silicon Nitride passivation to obtain the highest level of reliability. This technology has been evaluated for Space applications and is on the European Preferred Parts List of the European Space Agency.
