A novel four-state full Q-band waveguide phase shifter based on smooth-ridged sections is presented. The waveguide structure combines differential 90° and 180° phase shifters, whose combination provides the four-phase states (0°, 90°, 180°, and 270°) by appropriately controlling a set of millimeter-wave switches. Each differential phase shifter is performed using an E-plane continuous profile ridge to reach the 90° or 180° phase shift, respectively. The phase shifter module provides outstanding performance covering the full Q-band (33-50 GHz) with average phase results of 93.5°, 182.8°, and 270.6°.
