A 38 GHz all-pass phase shifter designed using the pHEMT 0.15 μm GaAs process is presented. The phase shifter consists of two groups of a low-pass filter (LPF) with a 90° phase shift and attenuators. By tuning the bias voltage, the magnitude and phase of the signal are changed. At the end of the circuit, a power combiner is used to obtain a 360° all-pass output signal. The measurement results show that the phase shifter can achieve phase variation with an insertion loss of about 10 dB and an
