MLCCs launch at European Microwave Week

At European Microwave Week 2016 (3 to 7 October), Knowles Capacitors will exhibit new high temperature multi-layer ceramic capacitors (MLCCs) in 0402, 0603 and 0805 sizes with ultra-Low ESR and High Q characteristics, from the Syfer and Novacap brands.  In addition, DLI-branded 175 degree C MLC devices in UL and AH high Q porcelain dielectrics will be shown. It will also be showcasing the EAR99 filters, power dividers and couplers together with the introduction of 5G specific surface mount device options.

The DLI Ins its brands – Novacap,single layer ceramic Milli-Caps and Opti-Caps (pictured) will also be at the show in London. Milli-Caps behave like an ideal capacitor, constructed as a single piece unit with insensitive orientation.  They match typical 50Ohm line widths with very low series inductance and ultra-high series resonance. They are low loss, high Q parts available in 0201, 0402 and 0602 footprints. Capacitance range covers 30pF to 220nF over the ceramic dielectrics X5R: -55 to +85 degree C (TCC ±15 per cent) and X7R: -55 to +125 degree C (TCC ±15 per cent).

Opti-Cap ultra broadband DC blocking capacitors exhibit low loss frequency stability over temperature with very low series inductance. They provide resonance-free DC blocking to 40GHz.  They are available in 0201, 0402 and 0602 footprints for SMT by solder or epoxy bonding.

Typical applications include test equipment, photonics, SONET, TOSA/ROSA, high speed data; broadband microwave/millimeter wave and transimpedance amplifiers.
