Provide industry-leading performance for high Q, low ESR

AVX Corp. has developed a porcelain and ceramic dielectric multilayer capacitor (MLC) that is said to provide industry-leading performance for high Q, low equivalent series resistance (ESR), and high self-resonance in a 0603 package.

Available with voltages up to 250Vdc, the new SQCS series offers a capacitance range of 0.1pF to 100pF. The operating temperature range is -55C to 125C. The company said the new MLCs offer the best electrical performance available in this package size, and target RF/microwave applications ranging from 1MHz to 10GHz including power amplifiers, filters, low-noise amplifiers and GPS.

Because the SQCS series is said to demonstrate NPO characteristics, it is suitable for applications where performance needs to be maintained despite the possibility of extreme temperature changes.

Pricing for the SQCS series ranges from 4 cents to 50 cents, depending on volume and tolerance. Delivery is from stock to six weeks.
