This page has been broken into several pages with additional content for January 2010.

Reflection phase shifters can be either digital (discrete states) or analog (infinitely variable). There are (at least) three ways to implement the reflection network, using a circulator (only one variable termination is needed) or using a four-port hybrid coupler (two variable terminations are needed). Hybrid couplers come in 90 degree and 180 degree varieties.
