Richardson Offers MA/COM Phase Shifters

LAFOX, Ill. — Richardson RFPD, Inc. today announces immediate availability and full design support capabilities for the newest additions to the family of GaAs pHEMT digital phase shifters from M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc. (M/A-COM Tech). The MAPS-010145 and MAPS-010165 are, respectively, 4- and 6-bit packaged devices that maintain low phase error and minimal attenuation variation over the full 360-degrees and 3.5-6 GHz frequency range.

Both new devices feature a built-in CMOS driver in a 4mm, 24-lead PQFN surface mount package that allows for serial or parallel control and low power consumption. The devices are targeted for communication antennas and phased array radar applications, making them excellent candidates for commercial weather radar applications and military ground based distance measuring radar applications.

Additional key features of the 4-bit MAPS-010145 Digital Phase Shifter include:

  • 3.5-6.0 GHz Frequency Range
  • 5.0 dB Insertion Loss (any phase state)
  • 360° Coverage with LSB = 22.5°
  • Low DC Power Consumption
  • Minimal (+/- 1.0 dB) Attenuation Variation over Phase Shift Range
  • 50 Ù Impedance
  • EAR99
  • Lead-Free 4 mm 24-Lead PQFN Package
  • RoHS* Compliant

Additional key features of the 6-bit MAPS-010165 Digital Phase Shifter include:

  • 3.5-6.0 GHz Frequency Range
  • 5.5 dB Insertion Loss (any phase state)
  • 360° Coverage with LSB = 5.6°
  • Low DC Power Consumption
  • Minimal (+/- 0.8 dB all states) Attenuation Variation over Phase Shift Range
  • 50 Ù Impedance
  • EAR99
  • Lead-Free 4 mm 24-Lead PQFN Package
  • RoHS* Compliant

Common configurations are in stock and available for immediate delivery.
