Hittite's Analog Phase Shifter Covers One Octave Bandwidth
-- Wideband Phase Shifter Exhibits Flat Insertion Phase vs. Frequency
MA, 08/05/2011 – Hittite Microwave Corporation, the world class supplier of complete MMIC based solutions for
communication & military markets has introduced a new SMT packaged MMIC Analog Phase Shifter which is ideal for phased
array, industrial sensors and clock and local oscillator (LO) synchronization applications in fiber optic, military,
test equipment and industrial/medical equipment.
HMC934LP5E is a GaAs MMIC
Phase Shifter which is controlled via an analog control voltage from 0 to +13V, and provides a continuously variable
relative phase shift of up to 400 degrees from 1 to 2 GHz. The
HMC934LP5E exhibits a low
insertion loss of 3.5 dB and the insertion loss characteristic is extremely consistent versus phase shift setting and
input frequency. The insertion phase of the
HMC934LP5E is monotonic with
respect to control voltage and offers a typical phase flatness of +3.5 / -2 degrees vs. input frequency.
has excellent microphonics due to the monolithic design and provides a dynamically adjustable solution in advanced
communications applications. The
HMC934LP5E MMIC Analog Phase
Shifter is ideal for synchronizing the phase of clocks in fiber optic systems and for adjusting the phase of the LO
signal in microwave subsystems. The
HMC934LP5E can also be used in
test equipment applications, and in antenna beam-shaping, anti-jamming and signal cancellation circuits.
The HMC934LP5E is housed in a compact, RoHS compliant 5 x 5 mm QFN SMT plastic package. Samples and evaluation PC
boards for all SMT packaged products are available from stock and can be ordered via the company's e-commerce site or
via direct purchase order. Released data sheets are available on-line at www.hittite.com.
