Abstract : A millimeter wave switchable microstrip Y-junction circulator is provided comprising a monolithic, wye-shaped ferrite element disposed on one surface of a section of microstrip dielectric substrate having three, Y-junction oriented sections of microstrip conductor on the same one substrate surface and an electrically conductive ground plane on the opposite substrate surface. The ferrite element has a central right prism-shaped portion with two equilateral triangular-shaped prism bases and three rectangular prism faces and three downwardly-sloping arm portions which extend radially outwardly from the prism faces of portions which extend radially outwardly from the prism faces of the central portion. (Patent application)
