May 24, 2012 Press Release
-- 4- and 6-Bit Packaged Devices Suited for C-Band Applications from 3.5 to 6 GHz
24, 2012 – LaFox, Illinois: Richardson RFPD, Inc. today announces immediate availability and full design support
capabilities for the newest additions to the
family of GaAs pHEMT digital phase shifters from M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc. (M/A-COM Tech). The
MAPS-010145 and MAPS-010165 are, respectively, 4- and 6-bit packaged devices that maintain low phase error and
minimal attenuation variation over the full 360-degrees and 3.5-6 GHz frequency range.
Both new 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. 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 radar applications.
Minimal (+/- 0.8 dB all states) Attenuation Variation over Phase Shift Range
50 Ω Impedance
Lead-Free 4 mm 24-Lead PQFN Package
