The global digital attenuators market is experiencing a significant growth and will grow considerably in next few years. Attenuator is a simple and passive device used to reduce the power of a signal without distorting its waveform and is made from simple voltage divider network. A digital attenuator is a device unlike other variable attenuators works by switching in discrete and finite attenuation states which is achieved in binary states by another definition.
Semiconductor devices are usually employed to achieve each attenuation state. The type of logic to be used is determined by driver circuitry utilized by these digital attenuators and number of bits used determines the complexity of driver circuitry.
CMOS logic levels and transistor-transistor logic (TTL) are the most common types of logic used by digital attenuators. Digital attenuators can provide maximum rated attenuation, if all the bits are selected. Digital attenuators have a variety of applications, including signal measurement and amplitude reduction, point-to-point nodes, 3G and 4G cellular networks, and a variety of test and measurement applications.
Employees are employed in communication equipment for signal transmission and reception to acquire signal control.
The global digital attenuators market is segmented on the basis of type, power wattage, application, and region. Based on type, the market is bifurcated into active and variable. In terms of power wattage, the market is categorized into 0 to 1 W, 10 to 100 W, and greater than 100 W.

COVID-19 Scenario Analysis
The global lockdown implemented in response to the COVID-19 outbreak has resulted in a financial collapse that has affected digital attenuators market size. Growing day-by-day this pandemic has affected the demand and supply chain. It is creating uncertainty in the stock market, falling business confidence, massive slowing of supply chain, and increasing panic among customers. Due to some major shutdowns of manufacturing units in the many regions across European countries have resulted in high loss of business and revenue.
The lockdown was the result of the new coronavirus's short-term influence on the manufacturing industry across the globe, which resulted in a drop in high-tech gloves demand. Furthermore, the supply of electronic components has been harmed as a result of the global shutdown. Organizations across the globe are gradually flattening their recessionary curve by leveraging technology with the continuing spread of the novel coronavirus pandemic.
Many businesses will go under survival mode through response, recovery, and renewal phases. The only way out of the COVID-19 crisis and moving towards the next normal is by building business resilience and enabling agility which will aid the organizations to further move forward in their journey. As government of different provinces have already announced total lockdown and temporarily shutdown of industries, the overall production process being adversely affected; thus, hinder the overall digital attenuators market opportunity globally.
