Mechanical Tunable Phase Shifters
Full band phase shifters are micrometer-driven, waveguide-based phase shifters. The configuration of the micrometer-driven phase shifters is similar to that of level setting attenuators, where the phase shifting is caused by an E-plane dielectric insert in the rectangular waveguide. The amount of phase shifting is directly dependent on the volume of the insert. The VSWR and the insertion loss of these phase shifters are dependent on the frequency. The below standard offering covers the frequency range of 18 to 110 GHz and a phase shifting range of 180 degrees. These micrometer-driven phase shifters are typically used to introduce a certain amount of phase shifting when the absolute number is not a focus.
