Arralis announces new Ka band phase shifters

New products unlock flat beam-steering antenna capability for 5G and on the go satellite communications

Space Tech Expo, Pasadena, CA, May 22nd, 2018:  Irish company Arralis, world leaders in building technology and products that are the future of global radar & wireless communications, today announced their new high-frequency analogue phase shifter MMIC products which allow >360 degree analog phase variation with low insertion loss covering two satellite Ka bands, 17-21GHz and 25.5-32.5GHz.

The product is ideal to track fast moving low earth orbit satellites because it is analog and has continuous phase variation, a great advantage over conventional digital phase shifters. The extended frequency range of the upper band chip is also suitable for the proposed 5G band and will be ideal for beam steering base stations. In addition, the added benefit of simplified assembly is possible as these chips are available with an integrated power amplifier.

This development is of great benefit to designers of Connected and Autonomous Vehicle and 5G systems as now a simple, reliable and flat beam steering and continuous tracking antenna can be realised. According to Mike Gleaves, the Arralis Group CTO, “at Space Tech we’ll be showing people our antenna solution, and highlighting how our new MMIC phase-shifters allow the development of high frequency electronically steerable flat antennas. We have in essence developed the technology that allows users to continuously track and communicate with Low-Earth-Orbit (LEO) satellites in a form that can be easily placed within, or on the roof of a vehicle, aircraft, satellite or just about anywhere.”

This release completes the most extensive range of Ka band chips, aimed at the 17-21GHz and 27-31GHz mega-constellation frequency bands on the market. The full range, fabricated on a space qualified process, includes […]
