Product Overview

The Agilent 8496A dc to 4 GHz manual step attenuator offers exceptional repeatability and reliability. Attenuation is provided in 10 dB steps from 0 to 110 dB. Precision gold-plated leaf springs ensure long life (over 5 million cycles) and very high attenuator repeatability (typically 0.01 dB). To improve measurement accuracy, NIST traceable data (SWR and attenuation) is available as Option 890. Custom step attenuator/switch combinations are possible. The Agilent 11716A/B/C interconnect kits provide quick connection of Agilent 8494/5/6/7 1 dB and 10 dB step attenuators in series for greater dynamic range with 1 dB steps. 


  • Frequency range: dc to 4 GHz 
  • Attenuation range: 0 to 110 dB, 10 dB steps 
  • Insertion loss at 0 dB: 0.6 dB + 0.09 dB/GHz 
  • Maximum SWR: 1.5 
  • Repeatability life: 0.03 dB maximum, 5 million cycles per section 
  • Maximum RF input power: 1 W (average), 100 W (peak) 
  • Connector type: choice of Type-N female, SMA female, APC-7

Option included:

  • Option 002 provides SMA(f) connectors
