Device replaces three or more discrete components in telecom and mobile wireless products




Pa. — June 14, 2016 —
Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today introduced
a new surface-mount thick-film chip attenuator featuring a balanced pi filter
schematic. Offered in a resistor array package, the Vishay Dale CZB can replace three or more
discrete devices, reducing board space requirements and simplifying the
manufacturing process in telecom and mobile wireless products. 

As a
single-component solution, the device released today delivers superior
tolerance matching and temperature tracking for improved performance in signal
attenuation applications. The CZB provides an attenuation range of 1.0 dB to
10.0 dB with an attenuation tolerance down to ±0.3 dB. 

attenuator features maximum power dissipation of 0.075 W at 70°C, a frequency
range to 3 GHz, and impedance of 50 Ω and 75 Ω. The RoHS-compliant device
operates over a temperature range of −55°C to 150°C.

Samples and production quantities of the CZB are available now, with
lead times nominally of eight to 10 weeks. Pricing for U.S. delivery only
starts at $0.098 per piece in medium quantities.
