We report the effects of the V$_2$O$_{5}$ additive on the sintering behavior and microwave dielectric properties of ZnNb$_2$O$_{6}$ ceramics. Densification temperatures of V$_2$O$_{5}$-doped ZnNb$_2$O$_{6}$ samples are lowered to the range of 875-9$25^{circ}C$ because of the liquid phase sintering. Doped samples are composed of a Zn(Nb,V)$_2$O$_{6}$ solid solution and second phases. Up to 5 wt% V$_2$O$_{5}$ is the only second phase, however, V$_2$O$_{5}$ also exists as the second phase for 10 wt% V$_2$O$_{5}$ addition. In comparison with reported values of undoped ZnNb$_2$O$_{6}$ ceramics, microwave properties of V$_2$O$_{5}$-doped ZnNb$_2$O$_{6}$ samples are seriously degraded, which is confirmed to originate from the second phases. The optimum microwave properties (Q$times$f=13,800, $varepsilon$$_{r}$=23, $tau$$_{f}$=-66ppm/$^{circ}C$) are obtained from ZnNb$_2$O$_{6}$ with the addition of 5 wt% V$_2$O$_{5}$ sintered at 90$0^{circ}C$.90$0^{circ}C$.EX>.
