New high resolution digital attenuator from Vaunix

New high resolution digital attenuator from Vaunix

Published: 27th September 2018

The LDA-5018V digital attenuator is a highly accurate, bi-directional, 50-ohm step attenuator.

Providing calibrated attenuation from 50 MHz to 18 GHz (VHF-, UHF-, L-, S-, C, X-, and Ku-band frequencies) it has an exceptionally precise step size of just 0.1 dB, while offering typical accuracy of <1.0 dB over 50 dB of control range.

The easily portable LDA-5018V is sized to fit into a single rack unit for ATE applications and can operate multiple devices directly from a PC or self-powered hub.

Lab Brick programmable digital attenuators are easily programmable to accomplish fixed attenuation, swept attenuation ramps, and fading profiles directly from the included Graphical User Interface (GUI).

If you want to develop your own interface, Vaunix supply LabVIEW drivers, Windows API DLL files, Linux drivers, Python examples, and much more.

The LDA-5018V is available now from MCS Test. Find out more about the Vaunix product range.

Real-Time vs. Sampling Oscilloscopes: What Are the Differences?

All modern oscilloscopes are categorized as digital storage oscilloscopes (DSO) which digitally sample, store, and display a signal to the user - but the technique for accomplishing this can vary from one scope to another. Two distinct categories you’ve probably heard about are real-time scopes and sampling scopes, each of which have advantages for specific applications. Understanding the differences between these two instruments can help determine which one is right for your use case.
