Following calculator calculates resistor values for the attenuator pad having shape of 'π'.

Impedance in Ohms (input1) :

Attenuation in dB (input2) :

R1 and R2 are (output 1 and 2) :

R3(output 3) :

EXAMPLE of RF Pad calculator (PI-Type):
INPUTS: Impedance = 50 , Attenuation = 3dB
OUTPUTS: R1=R2= 16.6 (take standard 18 value), R3 = 66.9 (take standard 66.5 value )
