Overview

CAES offers a variety of phase shifters to meet your design needs. With complete design and test capability to 40 GHz, CAES has phase shifter resources to help you develop a new design, build to an existing specification or replace an obsolete component.

Phase Shifters continuously change the phase of a microwave signal by applying a varying DC current, voltage or digital signal, depending upon the model type selected. Customized features are highly sought after designs, comprising a great majority of products in existence.

Capabilities for customization include thermal compensation (typically available in voltage or digital models), and can linearization and matching.

Our portfolio includes:

  • Catalog models which are are SMA connectorized. Alternate connector configurations and surface mount or drop in designs are available as custom features
  • Custom continuously variable phase shifters (analog)

Variable Phase Shifters

CAES offers a wide range of analog and digital variable phase shifters for all of your aerospace and defense system needs.
