I am using 20dB attenuator(HMC802) which was working when tested earlier by feeding -30dBm power at 2250Mhz. Today, I tested again , the same power and frequency was given as earlier. In spectrum analyzer it shows -37dBm power. Even after changing the control signals(which is active low), the power is constant. The control signals are changed using a SPDT switch which can handle upto 3A of current.
There is no shorting of power supply and control voltage is also changing between 0 and 5V by the use of a SPDT switch.
Power supply given is 5V
Control Voltage 5V means no attenuation
Control Voltage 0V means 20 dB Attenuation
I had faced this problem many times. Please reply me as soon as possible, the reason why it is not working and what steps should be taken to avoid such things to happen.
I don't find any Texas Instruments reference to an HMC802. From what I am able to see, this is an Analog Devices part, so it would be totally inappropriate to have a discussion of such here on E2E.
If you have a TI device or design you would like to discuss, please Reply with the appropriate information.
