(1) Varactor-tuned oscillators (VTO), on the other hand, feature high speed tuning, although their linearity is inferior to that of YIG-tuned oscillators. Another function of this shifter is to scale down the range of tuning voltage by a voltage divider formed by R 3 and R 2. C S must be increased accordingly, since the actual range of tuning voltage applied to the varactor is reduced. The advantage with this simple shifter is that it offers another control over the tuning curve by carefully. output power over the full tuning range. The VTO Series varactor-tuned oscillators are packaged in TO-8 transistor cans for simple installation in a conventional ohm micro-stripline PC board. They are ideal for most compact, lightweight commercial and military equip-ment designs. Test fixturing is also available for lab bench test.

The letter describes the results of applying reactance compensation to a simple coaxial X band varactor-tuned Gunn oscillator. An improvement of a factor of two in electronic tuning range . When electrical tuning of an oscillator is required over a wide microwave frequency range, yttrium iron garnet (YIG)-tuned oscillators usually provide the widest frequency coverage as well as. Clive Poole, Izzat Darwazeh, in Microwave Active Circuit Analysis and Design, Varactor Tuned Oscillators. The advantages of varactor tuning are low power consumption, small size, and high tuning speed. The price to be paid for these advantages are a relatively narrow tuning range of around 3% and a relatively low Q. GUNN Oscillator PIN Diode modulators offer an ideal way for amplitude and the pulse modulation of microwave signal through wide range of frequencies. These modulators utilize PIN Diode which are mounted across the waveguide line a R.F. isolated DC bias lead passing to .

The tuning range for the resonance frequency was from to GHz with an operational impedance bandwidth of about 39 MHz. The proposed filter offers a compact size of × λ g, continuous tunability, simple structure, and wide-tuned range which makes the designed BPF suitable for recent wireless communications. In the bandpass mode, the lower passband tuning range is from GHz to GHz (% tuning range) with return loss better than dB, and the tuning range of higher passband is from GHz.   The single-tuned oscillator in this article exhibits good tuning linearity of 35 MHz/V and a MHz to GHz frequency tuning range with approximately a tuning bandwidth. More than 7 dBm output power with less than dBc/Hz phase .   Assuming the plate E 1 can be pulled in by a distance (x = d 1 − ɛ), where ɛ is infinitesimal, maximum tuning range becomes (d 1 − ɛ)/ɛ. Theoretically, arbitrary tuning range can be achieved. In reality, the achievable tuning range value also depends on other factors, such as surface roughness and curvature of E 2 and E 1.
