New MLC chip capacitors have been announced by Knowles capacitor brands Novacap and Syfer Technology. The extended range is suitable for use in oil exploration, geothermal, military, automotive under-hood and avionic applications.
The firm’s HiT range of MLCCs boasts an operating temperature range of -55 to +200ºC.
The firm says it will now be offering tin over nickel terminations not previously available in the company’s other high temperature MLCC ranges.
The product specifications include both Stable (C0G) and ultra stable (X7R) dielectric options in case sizes 0805 to 2220. Capacitance ranges from 4.7pF to 3.3uF and rated voltages span 16 to 630V dc.
Knowles also announced the increase in specified maximum capacitor values for the 500/630V parts. The upper limit is now 68nF. The firm also plans to add 0603 case size in X7R material shortly.
The range is RoSH compliant and lead free, and is manufactured using a screen printing process unique to Knowles.
