These building block components cover broadband microwave and millimeter wave frequencies and are suitable for aerospace and defense radar and EW applications which involve phased-array antennas, phase discriminators, beam forming networks and RF communication systems.

Pasternack’s digital phase shifters have a programmable 8-bit TTL logic interface where phase states can be precisely controlled. The highly integrated hybrid MIC design architecture offers the benefit of greater immunity to noise on control lines and gives more uniform performance from unit to unit, achieves a flatter phase response over a wider frequency bandwidth with higher power handling and improved linearity performance.

Four new models are available, covering frequency bands that range from 0.5 to 37 GHz. Typical phase shift error ranges from +/- 0.9 to +/- 5 degrees over 8 binary increments with fast switching speed performance from 30 to 450ns. Maximum input (CW) power varies from +10 dBm to +30 dBm depending on the model. The compact packages are environmentally sealed and feature field replaceable SMA or 2.92mm connectors and sub-miniature D multi-pin connectors for the power/logic controls.
