Varactor Diodes Tout Low Phase Noise
Tue, 04/12/2011 - 2:38pm
Skyworks Solutions' SMV2025-079LF silicon surface mount, hyperabrupt tuning varactor diode is appropriate for use as a high-Q tuning element in an RF voltage controlled osscillator (VCO), voltage-controlled phase shifter, or tunable bandpass filter. The minimum capacitance ratio from 2 V to 10 V is 2.2, which makes the hyperabrupt varactor diode suitable for wide bandwidth VCOs and wide phase range phase shifters. The SMV2025-079LF is manufactured in an ultra-small, surface mount industry-standard SC-79 package that offers very low parasitic inductance and capacitance.
