attenuators, connectors, etc.

Here’s where to get quality attenuators and connectors

Testing any high gain low noise amplifier requires a nice clean attenuator.

You need to drop the level of your function generator,

or that x1000 gain amp would need to supply 100 V output.


Pasternack Enterprisese sells a nice 30dB atten for about $42.

Their part number is PE7000-30.


If you put 2 of these in series, you have about x1000 attenuation.

(These assume a 50 Ohm load, so buy one of those too).

Here’s a link to their website:
