Abstract

In this paper, a full-360° reflection-type phase shifter (RTPS) using a trans-directional (TRD) coupler with multi-resonance loads is presented. It features the characteristics of wide bandwidth, small size, and wide phase shifts with a compact structure and inherent DC blocking. Influences of the multi-resonance loads on the phase shifts and insertion losses of the RTPS are analyzed, and design procedures are given for guidance. For validation, a prototype is designed at 2 GHz. The overall size is 0.56λg × 0.17λg. Measured results show a bandwidth of 20% under the criterion of more than 10-dB return loss. Meanwhile, a relative phase variation of 425° with a maximum insertion loss of 3.6 dB is achieved when the varactor capacitance is varied among 0.35 pF~3.2 pF.
