- Packaging microwave hybrid microcircuits having combined electrical functions presented challenges in meeting space requirements without excessive signal interaction between microwave networks. The dispersive characteristics of microwave hybrid microcircuits are aggravated by the proximity of conductive materials, which places stringent requirements on packaging space and geometry. A space savings of 15 to 20 percent has been achieved with the wiggly phase shifter and wiggly directional coupler. In addition, the performance of each device has been significantly improved. The VSWR bandwidth of the phase shifter has been doubled, and the directivity of the directional coupler has been increased by 20 dB.
