Can an RF attenuator be used in non RF applications?

I need an attenuator that will attenuate a signal from dc to 100MHz by a factor of 1 to 10. The signal could be up to 20Vp-p. Could an RF attenuator be used for this? Thanks

  • Also, our RF attenuators cannot be operated at true DC frequencies. The lowest frequency supported is 9kHz (ADRF5720) with derated power handling at these frequencies. Please refer to the datasheet. 

    For the HMC parts showing DC min operating frequency:

    We plan to change min operating frequency from DC to 100 MHz in many of the datasheets when we convert them from HMC to ADI format. We have no RF attenuators in the HMC portfolio that can be operated at DC.
