Skyworks introduced two miniature 0402 varactor diodes for voltage controlled oscillator (VCO), phase noise, and voltage-tuned filter applications. Optimized for small form factor, these discrete solutions are available in plastic surface mount technology (SMT) packages that fit the 0402 PCB footprint and are well suited for applications requiring low resistance, low inductance, and a wide tuning range.
The SMV1705-040LF and SMV1232-040LF are designed for 3V platforms in low phase noise VCOs used at frequencies in wireless systems up to and beyond 2.5 GHz. These general market diodes are also targeted at WLAN, CATV, LNB, energy management, wireless infrastructure and military markets.
