SMV2020-000 Chip
Hyberabrupt Junction Tuning Varactor Diode Chip

Skyworks silicon hyperabrupt junction varactor diode chips are processed using established ion-implantation technology resulting in low RS wide tuning ratio devices with high Q values. These planar chips have a small outline size (12 x 12 mils nominal) and are fully passivated resulting in low leakage current and high reliability. These varactor chips are intended for assembly in hybrid integrated circuit resonators used in VCOs and analog tuned filters.

Epoxy and ceramic hermetic packaged hyperabrupt varactor diode products are available through Isolink (a wholly owned subsidiary of Skyworks Solutions, Inc.)
