Macom Technology Solutions Inc. recently debut the MAVR-000120-1411, a broadband general purpose varactor diode for multi-market applications.

The MAVR-000120-1411 is designed for customers who need a versatile, low cost, ultra-small varactor solution for Police Radar, Point to Point, Electronic Warfare and Aerospace and Defence applications. The device is a package-less varactor with contacts that allows for standard solder reflow manufacturing processes. Unlike its nearest alternatives, the MAVR-000120-1411 is fabricated using a GaAs process which provide customers full passivation for increased performance and reliability

The constant gamma varactor is designed for tuning capacitance in the 2-12V range. The low parasitic capacitance and inductance allow for operation up to 30GHz.

Datasheet for the MAVR-000120-1411 can be downloaded here.
