30-VOLT ABRUPT TUNING VARACTORS

Tuning Varactors: MBT 3000 Series

Description

The Massachusetts Bay Technologies MBT3000’s series Tuning Varactors are silicon abrupt junction devices. Each device has been designed to obtain the highest Q and lowest resistance possible in 30 volt tuning diodes. Each device in this series has a high density silicon dioxide passivation which results in exceptionally low leakage currents at higher temperatures.

Applications

The MBT3000 series of silicon tuning diodes are used for both narrow and wideband tuning. They are suited for frequency tuning applications through KU band. The MBT3000 series are used in phase shifters, voltage controlled oscillators and frequency synthesizers.
Standard capacitance tolerance is ±10%. Diodes can be optimized for custom electrical or mechanical specification upon request.

Features

Low Series Resistance – High Q
Extensive Selection of Capacitance Values Packaging

Packaging

Available in a wide Range of Case Styles as well as Chip Form

Typical Performance
