SiC Schottky diode varactors have been designed for use in tunable microwave power circuits. Epitaxial growth results show excellent material uniformity with low access layer sheet resistances. Two types of device layouts have been evaluated. Island type layouts reduce the parasitic series resistance by 50-60% compared to typical finger layouts. The Q-factors of downscaled island devices are approaching the intrinsic material performance, but are limited by an increasing parasitic parallel capacitance.
