A 10–67-GHz CMOS Step Attenuator with Improved Flatness and Large Attenuation Range Conference Paper uri icon


  • 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.
