Arralis announced their advanced K- and Ka-Band analogue bare die phase shifters are ready to order. Operating at 17 to 21 or 25 to 33 GHz, the phase shifters enable up to 350-degree and > 360-degree smooth phase variation across the band respectively.
Arralis analogue phase shifters are an alternative to digital phase shifters where any required phase delay is achievable with the phase set by varying the control voltage in the range of -0.5 to 0.7 V. This smooth phase variation is vitally important for the development of beam steering antenna systems.
The phase shifters have several applications however key market applications are listed below.
- Frequency Translation
- Beam Steering Antenna
- Phased Arrays
- 5G networks
- Satellite Downlinks
“Electronically steerable antennas are becoming an ever-increasing necessity for the next generation of LEO satellite constellations. These antenna have the ability to simultaneously steer multiple beams and allow beams to be rapidly re-positioned at speeds that are not possible with mechanically steered antenna. To help antenna designers to achieve this, Arralis have launched our new K-/Ka-Band phase shifters,” said Engineer Dr Geoffrey Barigye.
