-- Phase Shifter Delivers Low Phase and Attenuation Error, High Linearity and Serial or Parallel Control
Lowell, MA, June 18th, 2012 – M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc. (M/A-COM Tech), a leading
supplier of high performance analog semiconductor solutions, introduced today a new 6-Bit addition to its family
of digital phase shifters for communication antenna and radar applications.
is a GaAs pHEMT 6-Bit 1.2GHz to 1.4GHz digital phase shifter with an integrated CMOS driver.
Housed in a 4mm 24-Lead PQFN Package, the phase shifter provides 360° phase shift range with a step size of 5.6°.
The package provides a smaller footprint than is typically available for a digital phase shifter with an internal
is ideally suited for applications where high phase accuracy with minimum loss variation is
required. The design has been optimized to minimize variation in attenuation over the phase shift range, and
facilitates easy implementation.
The GaAs pHEMT 6-Bit phase shifter meets the high performance
requirements of communications and radar system manufacturers, optimizing for fast switching speed, low phase
error, and serial or parallel control capability. Its insertion loss is 3.8dB, with a low 0.4dB RMS attenuation
error over the 1.2 to 1.4 GHz frequency range.
was specifically designed for L-Band Radar and Communication applications,” said Kevin Harrington,
Product Marketing Manager. “It’s ideal for customers looking for the lowest RMS phase and attenuation error from
1.2GHz to 1.4GHz.”
