Abstract : The devices under development are real-time-delay digital phase shifters utilizing 4-port single-junction waveguide latching circulators. A preliminary theoretical cavity investigation based on a cavity mode excitation model for the circulator is described. Several mode excitation 'models' are discussed, and empirical data presented. The role of ferrimagnetic material parameters and a method for rapid measurement of rf characteristics of the circulator are discussed. Data are presented on circulator operation in X band (8.2 - 12.4 GHz).
