GaAs High Q Abrupt Junction

The MA46600 series of microwave tuning varactors is a family of abrupt junction gallium arsenide devices featuring Q factors in excess of 8000. This series is specifically designed for broadband high Q tuning performance (up to 8000 at -4 volts and 50 MHz) from L through Ka band. Characteristics such as high reliability, low leakage and close capacitance tracking between diodes are typical of these devices. Standard capacitance matching is ± 10%, but closer matching is available upon request. All diode types are available in a wide selection of ceramic packages as well as in chip form. The MA46600 series of tuning varactors can be used for both broad and narrow band tuning through Ka-band. Typical applications include solid state tuning of VCOs using transistors or Gunns as well as voltage tunable filters and amplifier circuits. The GaAs abrupt junction tuning varactors offer the highest Q of any tuning varactors and are utilized in high frequency applications where Q is premium
