European Microwave Week 2016 with selection of new products
Featuring a new range of high temperature Multilayer Ceramic Capacitors, is stand number 178 at European Microwave Week 2016. In 0402, 0603 and 0805 sizes, the ultra-Low ESR and High Q characteristics are available from the Syfer and Novacap brands.
Electrode system optimised for lowest possible ESR
A new addition to the range of High-Q MLCCs has been released by Knowles Capacitors brand, Syfer. Designated as the “H” series they are manufactured from a very stable, X8G High Q ceramic dielectric to provide Ultra-low ESR, with excellent low loss performance and low power consumption, in high environmental temperature and high frequency systems. They exhibit no ageing effects, with stability under voltage and very low drift.
Capacitors designed to not drop more than 50% of their cap value
Design engineers looking for capacitors to have a more defined change of capacitance with applied with voltage can now specify the VC1 range from Knowles Capacitors brand, Syfer Technology. This residual capacitance range of X7R MLCCs are designed to not drop more than 50% of their cap value from the 1Vrms 1kHz value, all the way up to full rated DC voltage at room temperature.
MLCCs offer increased capacitances in unchanged packages
To meet increasing demands from the automotive market, Syfer Technology, a Knowles brand, has improved its offering of AEC-Q200 qualified devices, including MultiLayer Ceramic Capacitors (MLCCs) and EMI filter products. Available from the miniature 0603 size up to the 3640 footprint, MLCCs in C0G and X7R dielectrics are offered with capacitances ranging from 100pF to 4.7µF, with operating voltages from 50VDC to 3kVDC.
Companies combine to form Knowles Capacitors
A division of Knowles Corporation, Dielectric Laboratories (DLI), Novacap, Syfer Technology and Voltronics have come together into a single organisation: Knowles Capacitors. The new company's head office will be in Norwich, UK, and will be headed up by Howard Ingleson, the previous MD of Syfer Technology.
Accurately simulate Ultra-Low ESR MLCC performance
