APITech Introduces Surface Mount Ceramic Chip Capacitors for High Voltage Applications

APITech (API Technologies Corp.) has introduced a new line of surface mount ceramic chip capacitors for high voltage applications. These high voltage chip capacitors have been constructed to filter out electromagnetic interference (EMI) and smooth output voltages and built for applications up to 2500 V DC. They are small, leadless, and can easily be placed on a PCB.

Don Dilworth, Product Line Manager of Ceramic and Coaxial Devices at APITech said that they are excited to fill a growing need in the medical and defense sector by adding high voltage chips to our ceramic capabilities. These capacitors perform particularly well in medical electronics, military weapons, and other RF applications," said Don Dilworth, Product Line Manager of Ceramic and Coaxial Devices.

APITech's ceramic capacitors are designed and produced at their state of the art ceramics factory in State College, PA (USA). APITech validates performance requirements with 100% testing for capacitance, dissipation factor, insulation resistance, and dielectric withstanding voltage. Additional testing can be performed as required, thermal shock, voltage conditioning, customized transient/pulse testing, and other critical tests.

Marty King, Engineering Manager for Ceramics commented, "Building our ceramic products in the U.S. gives us an advantage.  Not only do we have the experience of solving unique challenges, but we also have both our design and process engineers together on-site working through the entire process."
