Features & benefits

Wide frequency and attenuation range

Up to 67 GHz, 139 dB attenuation

Thanks to its wide frequency and attenuation range, the RSC covers a wide variety of applications and is a versatile tool in the lab.

RF performance

Outstanding repeatability and accuracy

With specified repeatability of 0.02 dB (typical) and attenuation accuracy, the RSC is an excellent tool for calibrating sources, receivers and comprehensive calibration systems. User calibration can further enhance accuracy by integrating the test cable into the attenuation values.

Flexible configuration

GUI for individualization

Operators can use the clear GUI to configure the RSC and get it ready for an application. Its main features include various calibration capabilities, control of external attenuators and the ability to combine up to four external RSCs to form a new logical attenuator.
