Knowles New "HiT" High Temperature Ceramic MLCs

Knowles New "HiT" High Temperature Ceramic MLCs

Knowles capacitor brands Novacap and Syfer Technology jointly announce the launch of a new range of high temperature MLC chip capacitors. The "HiT" range of MLCCs has an operating temperature range of -55 to +200ºC and are suitable for a variety of high temperature applications and offer tin over nickel terminations – not previously available.

 

Projects in oil exploration, geothermal, military, automotive under-hood and avionics will find the wide capacitance range of 4.7pF to 3.3uF, over the rated voltage spread 16 to 630V dc, of interest.  Stable and ultra stable dielectric options, C0G & X7R materials, are both RoSH compliant and lead free.
This range is manufactured to exacting standards using Knowles unique screen printing process to provide a high quality component suitable for demanding applications.

  • Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors vs. Film Capacitors

    The progress in semiconductor design sets the trend in current and future devices of power electronics: it manifests itself particularly in smaller dimensions, as well as in higher voltages and switching frequencies. Referring to intermediate circuit capacitors, this trend leads to aiming at higher energy densities and larger current loads, and – at the same time – decreasing space.

    Under these conditions, especially aluminum electrolytic capacitors and plastic film capacitors offer advantageous solutions. Jianghai has both technologies in the production program and this article gives an overview on the major differences between aluminum electrolytic capacitors and film capacitors.

  • Prudent use of electrolytic capacitors in vibrating applications

    The use of electrolytic capacitors in vibrating applications like motor controllers or power tools, must be considered very carefully regarding specific criteria.
    When you're designing electronic control applications or drives, you have to think about specifications like higher power and miniaturisation.
    If you're designing vibrating applications however, you should not forget to think about vibration resistance and temperature!

  • Miniaturization of HV applications: a solution for every Power Electronics Engineer

    StackiCap™ has been set to revolutionise the world of large, HV(200V – 2kV), X7R Multilayer Chip Capacitors (MLCCs)!

    It dramatically increases the max capacitance values within a size/voltage or can reduce chip sizes. They take up 1/10th of the current footprint dimension and save up to 9/10th of the weight of a stacked cap. The advantages are spectacular on any HV products where pcb space is at a premium and max. capacitance is required in a smaller footprint. Typical applications include power supplies, projector modules, lighting systems and throughout the aerospace sector.

  • High Voltage SM Capacitors

    Is High Voltage in relatively small case sizes a great issue for you?  ProtectiCap™ of Syfer will open a lot of oppertunities. The integral coating of this capacitor series minimizes the risk of flashover from one termination of the chip to the other, without any requirement for the customer to apply conformal coating after soldering.
