Vishay has launched a surface-mount thin film RF capacitor with, what is claimed to be, the highest self-resonance frequency, ranging from 8.5 to upwards of 20 GHz, depending on capacitance. This RFCS series replaces the previous generation HPC product range.
Kemet has expanded its surface-mount, multilayer ceramic capacitor portfolio in C0G dielectric with over 80 part types.
Tenrod has introduced Sanyo's Oscon capacitors which unlike aluminium electrolytic capacitors use a highly conductive organic semiconductor as the electrolyte.
Metallised polypropylene film capacitors are at no risks from leakage. The cases are metallic, the covers are in self-extinguishing plastic (Class V2 to UL-94 standards) and an edging of the case on the cover seals the capacitor, ensuring airtight closure.
