The CGY2393SUH/C1 is a high performance GaAs MMIC 5-bit True Time Delay operating from 6 to 18 GHz. The application of True Time Delay instead of Phase Shifter offers an enhanced broadband bandwidth with less beam squinting effects. The device has a range of 310 ps with 10 to 160 ps steps. It uses an optimum switched line to obtain very low delay error and insertion loss variation.
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).
