What is another word for Attenuators?

Pronunciation: [ɐtˈɛnjuːˌe͡ɪtəz] (IPA)

Attenuators, also known as decibel attenuators, are devices that are used to reduce the amplitude or power of a signal without introducing distortion or altering its waveform. Some synonyms for attenuators include dampeners, reducers, suppressors, silencers, and buffers. These devices are widely used in a range of applications including telecommunications, audio systems, and signal processing systems. Attenuators come in various types such as fixed attenuators, variable attenuators, and digital attenuators. These devices are typically designed to handle different frequency ranges, power levels, and impedance levels. With the assistance of attenuators, unwanted signals can be removed or reduced, leading to clearer and more accurate signal transmission.
