PPI Launches Traditional Hi-Q, Low ESR, Multilayer Ceramic Capacitors

Passive Plus (PPI) has introduced two, new traditional Hi-Q, Low ESR, Multilayer Ceramic Capacitors. The 2225 C/P (.220" x .250”) and 3838 C/P (.380" x .380") case size capacitors have an increased operating temperature qualified to 200°C.

The capacitors exhibit Low ESR/ESL, Low Noise, High RF Power, High Self-Resonance, as well as ultra-stable performance over temperature and available in NPO dielectrics & P90. They have been developed for Functional Applications including Bypass, Coupling, Tuning, Impedance Matching and D.C. Blocking. Typical Circuit Applications include UHF/VHF RF Power Amplifiers, Antenna Tuning, Plasma Chambers and Medical. Both the capacitors are available with Magnetic, or Non Magnetic terminations.

The 2225 C/P and 3838 C/P Series capacitors can also be incorporated into custom assemblies for these types of applications. All assembly components receive 100% Partial Discharge and 100% Sonoscan for internal defects prior to assembly. Final assemblies then receive 100 hour Military Burn-in, assuring highest quality and reliability.
