A 10–67-GHz CMOS step attenuator with improved flatness and large attenuation range Conference Paper uri icon

abstract

  • A four-bit CMOS step attenuator is designed using a new design method to achieve improved flatness and large attenuation range from 10-67 GHz. The design method is based on the frequency-response characteristics of the conventional Pi-, T-, and distributed attenuators. Over 10-67 GHz, the measured results exhibit attenuation flatness of 6.8 dB and attenuation range of 32-42 dB. 2013 IEEE.
