The CGY2172XAUH/C1 is a high performance GaAs MMIC 6–bit Phase Shifter operating in X-band. This product has a nominal phase shifting range of 0 – 360° in 5.625° steps and uses an optimum combination of switched line and high pass/low pass filters to obtain very low phase error and insertion loss variations. It covers the frequency range of 8 to 12 GHz and can be used in Radar, Telecommunication and Instrumentation applications.
The die is manufactured using ED02AH OMMIC’s 180 nm gate length pHEMT technology. The MMIC uses gold bonding pads and backside metallization and is fully protected with Silicon Nitride passivation to obtain the highest level of reliability. This technology has been evaluated for space applications and is on the European Preferred Parts List of the European Space Agency (ESA).
