T Attenuator Calculator

Calculates the resistor values, attenuation, 'impedance', reflection coefficient, VSWR and return loss of a T attenuator. This can be built into a FLEXI-BOX and a transmission line PCB is available which easily adapts for this circuit. There is also a selection of suitable connectors available.

   [Tattenuator circuit]

1) Enter the system impedance and required attenuation then then press "Calculate" below to obtain the ideal resistor values.
System impedance:   Ohms Ideal series resistor:   Ohms
Required attenuation:   dB Ideal shunt resistorac:   Ohms

2) Change the calculated resistor values in the amber text boxes below to the nearest Preferred Resistor Values or to those available then press " Calculate" below to get the resulting attenuator parameters.
Preferred value of series resistor:   Ohms Attenuation:   dB
Preferred value of shunt resistor:   Ohms Input Impedance:   Ohms
Mismatch Losses:  Included VSWR: 
Reflection Coefficient: 
Return Loss:   dB

This calculator uses Visual Basic and will work in Internet Explorer and other browsers with Visual Basic plug-ins. For more information see About our calculators. A further simple T Attenuator Calculator is available in JavaScript.

This calculator uses simple Ohms law calculations, and more comprehensive formulas for Voltage Reflection Coefficient and VSWR which are available at:-
