Guide outlines Knowles Capacitors’ Space Heritage products
As Space Tech Expo 2017 takes place in Pasadena, California, USA (May 23 to 25), Knowles Capacitors is releasing a shortform capability guide produced to outline its range of Space Heritage products.
The guide is user-friendly, says Knowles, and provides an overview of Knowles’ space heritage and involvement in space grade platforms, as well as illustrates the specialty high-rel and approved parts that are used in critical or high-reliability environments.
Knowles brands, Syfer Technology and Novacap, draw on the experience and expertise gained on several platforms to supply multi-layer ceramic capacitors (MLCCs) and assemblies for military and commercial space programs. The products detailed in the guide include EMI filters, high rel and high temperature capacitors and space-grade ranges including leaded and capacitor assembly options.
Knowles highlights the range of single layer capacitor (SLC) filters, power dividers and directional couplers from Knowles’ brand DLI. The filter series encapsulates SM bandpass, low pass, high pass and cavity filters, typically used in microwave radar, satellite and radio comms, test equipment and 5G basestations, for example,,
The surface mount products can be seen at the Knowles Capacitor booth (2024) at Space Tech. They are designed to work at up to 42GHz and with temperature stability over -55 to +125 degree C. Power handling is up to 40W and they offer high repeatability thanks to their precision thin film fabrication. The range is also EAR99-approved.
