What is Varactor Diode?

The varactor diode is one type of PN junction diode whose internal capacitance changes with the applied reverse bias voltage. It is also known as Varicap diode (Variable Capacitance).

Applications of the Varactor Diode

  1. Voltage Controlled Oscillator
  2. Phase and Frequency Modulators
  3. RF Filters
  4. FM Receivers and other telecommunication receivers (For tuning)

Important Specifications:

  1. Capacitance Range
  2. Capacitance Ratio
  3. Reverse Current (Leakage current)
  4. Breakdown Voltage
  5. Quality Factor
