digital phase shifter

digital phase shifter

[′dij·əd·əl ′fāz ‚shif·tər]
(electronics)
Device which provides a signal phase shift by the application of a control pulse; a reversal or phase shift requires a control pulse of opposite polarity.

The core chip usually consists of a digital phase shifter and an attenuator, along with low noise and medium power amplifiers that interface directly with the receive and transmit path MMICs.
In order to simplify the feed network, continuous adjustment for the excitation amplitude and phase of array elements can be adjusted as discrete adjustment, such as array thinning technology adopted for pattern synthesis by controlling the on/off status of elements [3-13], phase array technology adopting N-bit digital phase shifter [14-17], and pattern synthesis combining array thinning and unequally spaced array [9,18] etc.
Besides, digital attenuator and digital phase shifter are adopted during the proposed synthesis.
This dilemma was solved by using a limited number of digital phase shifter and attenuator bits.
For the X-band, five-bit digital phase shifter, the 180 [degrees], 90 [degrees] and 45 [degrees] elements are classical switched phase-shifting cells; the 22.
A 6-bit digital phase shifter presented by Andricos, Bahl and Griffin [31] at C band utilizes reflection type phase shifters for larger phase bits and loaded line phase shifters for smaller phase bits.
com)-- Pasternack, a leading provider of RF, microwave and millimeter wave products, introduces a new series of 8-bit digital phase shifters which are programmable over a full 360[degrees] range and can produce a discrete set of phase states of up to 255 total steps with 1.
This is an important distinction from digital phase shifters that commonly require three to six control lines routed to each phase shifter.
2 GHz, the PE46120 integrates a 90-degree hybrid splitter, 5-bit digital phase shifters and a 4-bit digital step attenuator along with a low-voltage, CMOS serial digital interface.
On the one hand, digital phase shifters based on switching devices such as PIN diodes [4] or MEMS [5] have been developed.
The amplifiers may use electronically controlled, digital phase shifters to help mitigate this, but in addition to the extra cost and insertion loss, they may only provide a limited number of discreet phase settings.
Once the four values for [Phi] are generated they are weighted to correspond to the 10-bit digital phase shifters.
