Abstract : Microwave circuits consisting of two 3 dB hybrids interconnected by nonreciprocal phase shifters have been used to form switches, circulators, etc. The report reviews the properties of these circuits and the multifunction devices (switch-isolators, switch-phase shifters, and switch-phase shifter-isolators) that can be built using these circuits. Use of multifunction devices can result in reduction of insertion loss which would be of advantage for high power applications. (Author)
