The K-PS-1721 from Arralis is an Analog Variable Phase Shifter MMIC that operates from 17 to 21 GHz. It provides a phase shift from 0 to 350° and has an insertion loss of less than 8 dB. The phase shifter requires a control voltage from -0.7 to 1.9 V and a phase variation of ±15°. It offers an alternative to digital phase-shifters where any required phase delay can be achieved. This phase shifter requires a DC supply of 5 V and consumes 20 mA current. It is ideal for frequency translation, beam steering antenna, phased arrays, 5G networks, satellite downlinks, IoT, and security.
The K-PS-1721 is available as a die that measures 3450 x 2080 x 100 um that can be used in MCM and hybrid microcircuits. The underside of the die is gold plated enabling the MMIC to be compatible with precision die attach methods, as well as thermo-compression and thermosonic wire bonding.
