We present a 135deg/45deg phase shifter hybrid intended to be used in subharmonic sideband separation mixer schemes at submillimeter-wave frequencies. The design consists of an increased height 90deg 6-arm branch guide coupler with a three stub loaded differential line 45deg phase shifter at the output. The device has been implemented at G-band in an E-plane WR-05 splitblock design with a center frequency of 170 GHz and 15 % bandwidth. Measured S-parameter are in good agreement with simulations showing an isolation and return loss better than 20 dB and an amplitude and phase imbalance within 0.4 dB and 2deg, respectively.
