The success of adaptive tuning has enabled the technology to be incorporated in more products that are being introduced to the market.
In addition, it was able to provide optimal performance by fine tuning loops more precisely than auto-tune features, and provided stable control through set point and load changes.
For a particular mode, the tuning range is determined by the amount of this perturbation.
Disc ferrite materials are based on the control of the magnetic field and lead to a substantial tuning range of 250 MHz at 8 GHz while maintaining a high resonator unloaded Q (greater than 1000).
