M/A-COM Technology Solutions Announces New 1.2GHz - 1.4GHz GaAs pHEMT 6-Bit Digital Phase Shifter
Phase Shifter Delivers Low Phase and Attenuation Error, High Linearity and Serial or Parallel Control Capability
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 6-Bit addition to its family of digital phase shifters for communication antenna and radar applications.
The MAPS-011007 is a GaAs pHEMT 6-Bit 1.2GHz to 1.4GHz digital phase shifter with an integrated CMOS driver. Housed in a 4mm 24-Lead PQFN Package, the phase shifter provides 360° phase shift range with a step size of 5.6°. The package provides a smaller footprint than is typically available for a digital phase shifter with an internal driver.
The MAPS-011007 is ideally suited for applications where high phase accuracy with minimum loss variation is required. The design has been optimized to minimize variation in attenuation over the phase shift range, and facilitates easy implementation.
The GaAs pHEMT 6-Bit phase shifter meets the high performance requirements of communications and radar system manufacturers, optimizing for fast switching speed, low phase error, and serial or parallel control capability. Its insertion loss is 3.8dB, with a low 0.4dB RMS attenuation error over the 1.2 to 1.4 GHz frequency range.
"The MAPS-011007 was specifically designed for L-Band Radar and Communication applications," said Kevin Harrington, Product Marketing Manager. "It's ideal for customers looking for the lowest RMS phase and attenuation error from 1.2GHz to 1.4GHz."
The table below outlines typical performance:
Parameter Units MAPS-011007
Frequency GHz 1.2 - 1.4
Insertion Loss dB 3.8
Attenuation Variation dB +/- 0.5
RMS Attenuation Error dB 0.4
RMS Phase Error deg 2.0
Phase Accuracy deg +/- 4.0
Input IP3 dBm 48
1 dB Compression dBm 30
Production quantities and samples of MAPS-011007 are available from stock. Final datasheets and additional product information can be obtained from the M/A-COM Tech website at: www.macomtech.com
