from M/A-COM Tech
March 2, 2012 Press Release
- 4- and 6-Bit Packaged Devices Suited for X-Band Applications
from 8 to 12 GHz
2, 2012 – La Fox, Illinois: Richardson RFPD, Inc. today announces immediate
availability and full design support capabilities for two newly-released
additions to the family of GaAs pHEMT digital phase shifters from M/A-COM
Technology Solutions Inc. (M/A-COM Tech). The
MAPS-010166 are, respectively, 4- and 6-bit packaged devices that
maintain low phase error and minimal attenuation variation over the
full 360-degrees and 8-12 GHz frequency range.
devices feature a built-in CMOS driver in a 4mm, 24-lead PQFN surface
mount package that allows for serial or parallel control and low power
consumption, and both devices operate using positive and negative voltage
supply. The devices are targeted for communication antennas and phased
array radar applications, making them excellent candidates for commercial
weather radar applications and military ground-based distance-measuring
Minimal (+/- 1.2 dB) Attenuation Variation over Phase-Shift
