The MD Series includes the C0G, X7R, and X5R monolithic ceramic chips. The series is designed to offer the broadest variety of medical-grade capacitors to accommodate any number of implantable designs.
Medical implantable devices require High-Reliability Components to perform all the time, every time. To achieve this performance, Knowles screens every component. For medical implantable devices, screening is generally performed by following these two long-standing military specifications (MIL-SPECS) for reliability – MIL-PRF-55681 (Group A) and MIL-PRF-123 (Group A).
Putting parts through our testing and screening processes means you can be confident that our components will produce the level of reliability and safety necessary for being on the circuit boards of your life-critical implantable medical devices.
