RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for Skyworks SMV2026 series of hyperabrupt tuning varactor diodes. The SMV2026-079LF is offered in the SC-79 package while a smaller, SOD-882 package if available for space constrained layouts. Low series resistance of 0.5 ohm at 5 V typifies this Skyworks varactor series and enables low phase noise in wideband VCO designs.
Wide tuning range/ratio provides very wide tuning in low voltage applications and key performance parameters enable the replacement of Japanese manufactured varactor diodes, at a third of the cost. Ideal for applications including low-noise and wideband UHF and VHF VCOs, voltage-controlled phase shifters and tunable bandpass filters, the Skyworks SMV2026 is targeted for infrastructure, defense, automotive, and consumer markets.
