Mimix Asia launches 7-13 GHz GaAs MMIC 6-bit phase shifter. XS1000-BD offers 5.625° Least Significant Bit (LSB) phase shift.

November 5, 2009, Hsinchu, Taiwan - Mimix Asia, a supplier of monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs) for microwave and millimeter-wave applications, introduces today a 7-13 GHz GaAs MMIC 6-bit phase shifter with LVCMOS/TTL compatible digital control.

Identified as XS1000-BD, this device has digitally controlled 6-bit operation and a least significant bit (LSB) of 5.625°. The XS1000-BD delivers +25 dBm P1dB input compression and is well suited for beamforming, EW receivers, military and weather radar, and SATCOM applications.

"The XS1000-BD provides exceptional phase control with high linearity performance and low amplitude variance, making it ideally suited to Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) applications," says Paul Beasly, Business Development Manager, Mimix Asia. "The device is also offered in a QFN-style package to allow for surface mount board assembly."

Mimix performs 100% RF and DC testing on the XS1000-BD and samples are available today from stock. The datasheet, additional product information and technical support can be obtained from the Mimix Asia website at www.mimixasia.com.
