The MAPS-011008 is a GaAs pHEMT 6-bit digital phase shifter with an integrated CMOS driver in a lead-free 4 mm PQFN plastic surface mount package. Step size is 5.6° providing phase shift from 0° to 360° in 5.6° steps. This design has been optimized to minimize variation in attenuation over the phase shift range.
The MAPS-011008 is ideally suited for use where high phase accuracy with minimum loss variation over the phase shift range are required. The 4 mm PQFN package provides a smaller footprint than is typically available for a digital phase shifter with an internal driver. Typical applications include communications antennas and phased array radars.
