    If you were bulding a stepped attenuator using a 12 position switch for example what kind of contact type would you use shorting or non shorting.

    thanks

    i don't thnk it would make much dfference. I built one several years ago and i recall i used a ' make before break ' type which i think would be the shorting type. it means that when ypu turn the dial the two contacts are bridged before settlng on the next positon.
