For systems operating from 6 to 18 GHz and requiring tight control of phase, model PS-360-DC-3 with option 618-15D is a phase shifter with 360-deg. adjustment range over that frequency range. The 8-b digitally controlled phase shifter offers phase accuracy of ±5.2 deg. with typical phase-shift adjustment speed of 22 ns. The typical insertion loss is 10 dB with maximum VSWR of 2.0:1 over the full frequency range. The sideband suppression is 22 dB while the carrier suppression is typically 26 dB. The component exhibits phase-modulation/amplitude-modulation (PM/AM) characteristics as low as ±0.8 dB with harmonics of -25 dBc or better. The phase shifter, which is powered by supplies of +5 VDC and -12 to -15 VDC,  is supplied with removable female SMA connectors in a housing measuring 1.6 × 1.75 × 0.5 in.
