Abstract
An ultra-wide band 45° phase shifter based on a new planar artificial transmission line which can be used for UWB communication systems is presented. The planar artificial transmission line is composed of host line, grounded interdigital capacitors and meandered-line inductors. The phase shifter was measured to have a bandwidth about 114.7% (2.9 GHz to 10.7 GHz) for a maximum phase deviation of 2.9°, a maximum insertion loss of 1.2 dB, a minimum return loss of 13 dB and a compact size of 16.35 mm × 5.2 mm.
