Phase Shifters

Analog and digital phase shifters are an integration of either Varactor or PIN diodes with passive circuitry.  These units are continuously variable analog or converted to digital control or a true digital component that is switched from state-to-state.  Operating frequency ranges span from 200 MHz to 22 GHz, in up to 9:1 bandwidths, and made available with 500 ƞSec or 1.0 µSec switching speeds.  Narrowband models available from 22.0 GHz to 35.0 GHz with 10% bandwidth.

 

 Frequency Ranges:  From 200 MHz to 22 GHz, up to 9:1 bandwidths available as well as any optimization.  Narrowband models available from 22.0 GHz to 35.0 GHz with 10% bandwidth.

 

TTL Compatible Logic:  Binary logic Digital-to-Analog converter with 8 inputs; Logic ‘1’ / BIT = 256 discrete phase shifts with a 1.41 degree resolution (LSB) or all Logic ‘0’ = 0° reference state.  Up to 12 BIT resolution available upon request.

 

Optional Models:  Analog Voltage controlled or Switched Line Digital phase shifters are available.  Please consult the factory.

 

High Speed Switching:  Phase Shifters listed are measured from any set value to any set value. 

 

Low DC Power Consumption:  Phase Shifters require ±12 to ±15 VDC @ ±100 mA.

 

Stable Phase Shifts:  Variation vs. temperature is typically ±0.17° & ±0.035 dB / degrees C from -10° to +65° for 500 ƞSec models.  Slower models have better temperature coefficients, please consult the factory.

 

Operating Temperature Range:  Standard models include temperature compensation in a range from      -10° to +65° C.  For more severe environments, please consult the factory.

 

High RF Power Handling:  For power levels greater than listed, please consult the factory.

 

Standard Interfaces:  RF port connectors are ‘SMA’ female per MIL-C-39012.  Please consult the factory for additional options.

 

Life Time Integrity:  Phase Shifters can be designed to meet MIL-E-16400, Range 1 and MIL-E-5400, Class 2 environments operating within the -55° to +85° temperature range.

 

Low Phase Noise Option:  Offers a typical performance of -132 dBc/Hz @ 10 kHz offsets.  Requires ±5 VDC (<2%) @ ±100 mA low noise regulated supplies and user supplied latch command for inputs.  Please specify when ordering.
