PPI Introduces 10 nF and 100 nF Capacitors that Operate Up to 67 GHz

Passive Plus Inc. (PPI) has introduced a series of Broadband Capacitors, 01005BB, 0201BB, 0402BB, and 0805BB, available in 4 different case sizes. They are available with capacitance values of 10nF (10,000 pF) and 100nF (100,000 pF).

These capacitors are intended primarily for coupling RF signals or, occasionally, for bypassing them to ground, while blocking DC. The applications for which they are intended require small, surface-mountable devices that provide low RF impedances, i.e., low insertion losses and reflections, across extremely large RF bandwidths and temperatures typically ranging from -55 to +125° C.

Applications for the Broadband series are primarily found in the "signal integrity" market:

  • Optoelectronics/high speed data
  • ROSA/TOSA (Transmit/Receive optical subassemblies)
  • SONET (Synchronous Optical Networks)
  • Broadband test equipment
  • Broadband microwave and millimeter wave amplifiers and oscillators

Customers requiring surface-mountable, 10nF or 100nF capacitors that provide resonance-free, low insertion loss, low reflection operation over extremely large RF bandwidths will be well served by PPI's Broadband series.
