Abstract : Two general phase-shifting techniques were investigated, both of which employ semiconductor elements. The first approach is the step or incremental phase-shifting device which provides for discrete changes in phase. The second phase-shifting approach is a continuously variable one which provides for a greater flexibility in phase control. Both the semiconductor material and the circuit problems involved in each of these two approaches were further explored in some detail. Results indicate that both the desired phase-shifting characteristics as well as power-handling capabilities can be reached. (Author)
