    Kirt Blattenberger,


RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...

Unknow logo on component - RF Cafe Forums

RF Cafe Forums closed its virtual doors in 2012 mainly due to other social media platforms dominating public commenting venues. RF Cafe Forums began sometime around August of 2003 and was quite well-attended for many years. By 2010, Facebook and Twitter were overwhelmingly dominating online personal interaction, and RF Cafe Forums activity dropped off precipitously. If the folks at phpBB would release a version with integrated sign-in from the major social media platforms, I would resurrect the RF Cafe Forums, but until then it is probably not worth the effort. Regardless, there are still lots of great posts in the archive that ware worth looking at.

Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

I would like to know the brands that correspond to the logos ADE and TA.
- ADE is written in one oval.
The ADE component is a voltage controlled attenuator.

- TA writting is not just as the letters T and A but difficult to describe so I hope someone knows it already to understand which one I am talking about.
The TA components are an isolator and a voltage controlled attenuator.

Thank you in advance for your help.

Any chance you can post a picture of the parts with their markings. It's kind of hard to tell from a description. You have to post the image on your server and then reference it from here using the tags. Send your image to Kurt at RF Cafe and he'll post it if you don't have a server for hosting it.
