M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc., a supplier of high performance analog semiconductor solutions, introduced a new set of S-Band digital phase shifters for communications, electronic warfare (EW) and radar applications. M/A-COM will be exhibiting at EuMW in booth 422.

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.

“M/A-COM Tech’s new 2.3 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 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 to 3.8 GHz frequency range.
