The Ranatec Digital Attenuator Box 100 MHz – 8 GHz, 1 U, is a high performance, digitally controlled, 4-channel RF attenuator system. It is intended for any automated RF testing, where high accuracy signal power control is needed. It offers very good attenuation accuracy, high dynamic range and speed.The high performance of the Digital Attenuator Box 100 MHz – 8 GHz, 1 U, is obtained through a high precision attenuator design, along with extensive factory calibration procedures. Although the nominal setting is done with a 1 dB granularity, the actual attenuation is fed back from the attenuator. For the frequency range up to 6 GHz, this yields knowledge of the actual attenuation within +/-0.25 dB.

The RI 4410 Digital Step Attenuator is ideal for 8×8 MIMO, 5G LTE, and WiFi 6E automated RF Testing. The Ranatec Step Attenuators are used in applications where it is necessary to continuously vary the level of a signal. The key element in the attenuator is a PIN diode. By controlling the voltage of the PIN diode, a continuously variable level of attenuation can be achieved. The Ranatec Digital attenuators are suitable for wideband applications and have low insertion loss.
The Attenuator Box 100 MHz – 8 GHz, 1 U, is intended for any testing where accurate RF power control is needed over a wide dynamic range. Typical applications include transmitter, receiver as well as system-level testing of mobile, WLAN and Bluetoth devices:
- During all phases of product development
- For (pre-)conformance testing/homologation
- Production testing / Quality assurance
