  • Patent number: 4507629
    Abstract: A phase shifter utilizing a circulator and electronic switches to change the length of a transmission line is disclosed. More specifically, a section of transmission line terminated in a short circuit is coupled to one port of a circulator. Energy exiting the port is reflected by the short circuited transmission line to introduce a phase delay in the signal. A PIN diode is utilized to provide a switchable short across the transmission line to reduce its electrical length thereby reducing the phase delay.
