At construction of feeding superbroadband antenna systems new of construction principles for signal forming devices can be demanded. In the work, a new optomicrowave devices intented for superbroadband signal summation and delay and based on periodic planar delay-line structures are offered. It’s structures represent microstrip periodic transmission lines which elements consist of high-speed photodetectors and elements of the microwave integrated circuits. It is shown that such devices are capable to provide a variable delay of radio signals from 0,1 to hundreds nanoseconds over the frequency band of 20 GHz and above and phase shift on one element of phased-array from 0 to 360 degrees.
