KEMET has announced the Ultra HiQ-CBR Squared series of MLCCs. The devices' geometrically square construction results in lower inductance than standard EIA case sizes, improving low loss performance and operation at higher resonant frequencies. The Ultra HiQ-CBR Squared capacitors are suited for high power applications such as wireless, satellite and microwave communications, RF and power amplifier modules and medical electronics.
The Ultra HiQ-CBR Squared capacitors are 250VDC rated and are available in capacitance values up to 100pF. KEMET is also expanding the existing HiQ-CBR product portfolio to include 200VDC rated RF and microwave capacitors in EIA 0402 case size as well as extended capacitance offerings in EIA 0603 case size.
Mark Laps, Ceramic Specialty Technical Product Manager, KEMET, commented: “These new Ultra HiQ-CBR Squared MLCCs broaden KEMET’s RF and microwave component offerings by providing extremely low ESR under 100 pF and ultra-high Q to meet the needs of high power solutions. The C0G dielectric features a robust and exceptionally stable copper electrode base metal electrode system, while the square size results in higher self-resonant frequency as compared to standard EIA case sizes.”
