2014-01-08 20:51:39 - VAUNIX USB Controlled Lab Brick LDA-602 Digital Step Attenuator Voted Top Ten Test and Measurement Product by EverythingRF.com. Up to 6 GHz, 63dB range performance in a compact form factor powered and controlled through a USB connection.
The LDA-602 Lab Brick® Digital Attenuator with sma female connectors is a 50 Ohm RF step attenuator with calibrated operation up to 6 GHz. This unit connects to a USB port for control and power and requires no additional DC supply voltage. It is easily programmable for fixed attenuation or swept attenuation ramps directly from the included GUI. Lab Brick Digital Attenuator API DLL and LabVIEW-compatible drivers are also available for custom programming applications.
The LDA-602 Lab Brick Digital Attenuator is ideal for engineering and production test laboratories as well as integration into high speed automatic-test-equipment (ATE) systems. It can also be used in development of low-cost fading simulators for Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) and Single Input Multiple Output (SIMO)
communication systems such as WiMAX, 3G and LTE. It is based on GaAs monolithic-microwave-integrated-circuit (MMIC) attenuator technology for excellent repeatability of attenuation values.
The LDA series of Lab Brick Digital Attenuators boast 63 dB of programmable attenuation through 6 GHz, and can be used in the development of low-cost fading simulators for Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) and Single Input Multiple Output (SIMO) communication systems such as WiMAX, 3G and LTE.
Test signals at RF and microwave frequencies are required for many measurements, from commercial wireless and industrial applications to defense-electronics systems. Fortunately, Vaunix Technology Corporation has an option that rivals the traditionally large and expensive RF/microwave electronic test equipment. These compact, portable Lab Bricks are as much at home in the field as they are in the laboratory or production line. All Lab Bricks need for control is a laptop or personal computer (PC) with USB interface and the handy graphical-user-interface (GUI) software supplied with each instrument.
Located in Haverhill, MA VAUNIX Technology Corporation designs, manufactures, and services RF microwave test equipment and communications products. With engineering expertise rooted in microwave radio equipment repair and testing, Vaunix has developed the Lab Brick® product family of electronic test equipment, which sets a new standard for cost, size, and simplicity. Powered by USB and controlled by easy-to-use, graphical-user-interface (GUI) software, Lab Bricks are designed to meet the needs of engineers and technicians who work either in the lab or in the field.
