Mimix Asia, a supplier of monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMIC) for microwave and millimeter-wave applications, introduced a 7 to 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," said Paul Beasly, Business Development Manager, Mimix Asia. "The device is also offered in a QFN-style package to allow for surface mount board assembly."
