M/A-COM Technology Solutions Press Release - October 11, 2011

M/A-COM Technology Solutions Announces S-Band Additions
to Family of Digital Phase Shifters

-- New Phase Shifters Deliver Fast Switching Speed, Low Phase Error, and Serial
   or Parallel Control Capability


M/A-COM Technology Solutions

Lowell, MA, October 11, 2011 – M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc. (M/A-COM Tech), a leading supplier of high performance analog semiconductor solutions, introduced today a new set of S-Band digital phase shifters for communications, electronic warfare (EW), and radar applications. These phase shifters facilitate easy implementation in communication antennas, phased array radars, weather radars, and EW receivers. The S-Band GaAs pHEMT 4-Bit and 6-Bit digital phase shifters meet the high performance requirements of communications and radar system manufacturers, optimizing for fast switching speed, low phase error, and serial or parallel control capability.

MAPS-010144 is a 4-Bit digital phase shifter“M/A-COM Tech’s new 2.3 GHz to 3.8 GHz digital phase shifters maintain low phase error and low attenuation variation over the 360° range,” said Kevin Harrington, Product Manager. “The built-in CMOS driver allows for serial or parallel control while in a small form factor.” 

The MAPS-010144 is a 4-Bit digital phase shifter housed in a 4mm 24-lead PQFN Package. It provides 360° phase shift range with a step size of 22.5°. It is controlled with a single +5.0 V serial or parallel control line. Its insertion loss is 2.5 dB, with a low +/- 0.5 dB attenuation variation and +/- 4.0° phase accuracy over the 2.3 GHz to 3.8 GHz frequency range.

The MAPS-010164 is a 6-Bit digital phase shifter housed in a 4mm 24-Lead PQFN Package. It provides 360° phase shift range with a step size of 5.625°. It is controlled with a single +5.0 V serial or parallel control line. Its insertion loss is 3.2 dB, with a low +/- 0.6 dB attenuation variation and +/- 5.0° phase accuracy over the 2.3 GHz to 3.8 GHz frequency range.
