Vishay Intertechnology has added to its QUAD HIFREQ series of high-power surface-mount Multi-Layer Ceramic Chip capacitors (MLCCs) with a new device in the quad 2525 case size.
This means that the Vishay Vitramon QUAD HIFREQ series of MLCCs is now available in 0505, 1111, and 2525 case sizes. With the addition of the 2525 device, the series now offers maximum capacitance values up to 2,700pF and working voltages up to 3,600V.
Based on an extremely stable ceramic dielectric and offering high serial and parallel resonant frequencies, the new capacitor is designed to provide reliable performance in a wide range of RF applications.
The new 2525 device features a very high ‘Q’ rating of more than 4,000 at 10MHz, and low equivalent series resistance of as little as 0.018Ω.
The QUAD HIFREQ family is manufactured in noble metal electrode technology with a wet-build process. It is available with RoHS compliant nickel barrier terminations with 100% matte tin plates for reflow assembly, and with a minimum 4% leadbearing termination finish.
