New GaAs pHEMT Phase Shifter Delivers Low Phase Error, Serial or Parallel Control Capability, and Fast Switching Speed

Lowell, MA – M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc. (M/A-COM Tech), a leading supplier of high performance analog semiconductor solutions, introduced today a new digital phase shifter for C-Band Radar applications. The phase shifter facilitates easy implementation in communication antennas, phased array radars, and weather radars. The MAPS-011008 meets the high performance requirements of radar system manufacturers, optimizing for fast switching speed, low phase error, and serial or parallel control capability.

“This 6-Bit C-Band Phase Shifter is designed specifically for 5.0 GHz to 6.0 GHz applications,” said Kevin Harrington, Product Manager. “The part was optimized for low RMS Phase Error and RMS Attenuation Error.”

The MAPS-011008 is housed in a 4mm 24-lead PQFN Package. It provides 360° phase shift range with a step size of 5.6°. It is controlled with a single +5.0 V serial or parallel control line. Its insertion loss is 4.0 dB, with a low +/- 0.5 dB attenuation variation, and +/- 3.0° phase accuracy over the 5.0 to 6.0 GHz frequency range.

The table below outlines typical part number performance:
