It is shown how switchable one-port circuits having two impedance states may be transformed so as to exhibit reflection coefficients which have a prescribed phase angle difference and equal magnitude in the two states. In reflection-type phase shifters, arbitrary phase shift may be obtained without change of signal amplitude. The reflection properties are achieved by the use of an impedance-transforming two-port network. Design equations and an example are given.
