The CGY2176AUH/C1 is a high performance GaAs MMIC 6-bit attenuator operating in L, S and C-Band. It has an attenuation range of 31.5 dB with 0.5 dB steps, covers the frequency range from 1 to 8 GHz and can be used in radar, telecommunication and instrumentation applications.
The die is manufactured using ED02AH OMMIC’s 180 nm 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 (ESA).
