Multilayer Ceramic Capacitors


NOVACAP SMD Multilayer Ceramic Capacitors are designed and tested to operate in a harsh temperature range between -55?C and 200?C. Available in a variety of sizes with varying features, these Multilayer Ceramic Capacitors can be used in applications such as oil exploration, automotive/avionics engine compartment circuitry, modem, facsimile, and telephone and other electronic equipment where lightning or overvoltage surges can occur.


Stacked Capacitor Arrays


NOVACAP stacked capacitor arrays are available with low ESR and ESL in COG and X7R dielectric characteristics for use in high-power or high-frequency applications. The leaded configurations safeguard the devices against thermal and mechanical stresses, as well as include through-hole and surface mount J and L style leads bonded with high-temperature solder. Applications include high-capacitance discharge circuits and high-temperature filtering/decoupling, as well as input and output filters in switch mode power supplies.
