Available in 0301 and EIA 0603 packages compatible with high-speed, automated pick-and-place manufacturing

Richardson RFPD, Inc. announced recently the availability and full design support capabilities for three new ultra-broadband capacitors from American Technical Ceramics Corp. (ATC).

ATC’s ultra-broadband capacitors are manufactured with high quality materials to provide reliable and repeatable, ultra-broadband performance. They feature low insertion loss and are ideal for DC blocking, coupling, bypassing and feedback applications requiring ultra-broadband performance, including optoelectronics and high-speed data, transimpedance amplifiers, receive and transmit optical sub-assemblies (ROSA/TOSA), synchronous optical networks (SONET), and broadband test equipment.

One of the new devices, the 550S104MTT, is part of ATC’s 550S Series and is offered in a one-piece EIA 0603 SMT package. The other two new devices, the 550U104MCAT and 550U104MTT, are part of ATC’s 550U Series and are offered in one-piece 0301 packages. All three devices are fully compatible with high-speed, automated pick-and-place manufacturing.

According to ATC, additional key features of the new devices include:

  • Operating frequency: 16 KHz (-3 dB roll-off) to 40+ GHz (at 25 ºC, no bias applied)
  • Capacitance: 100 nF
  • Typical insertion loss: <1 dB (550S); 0.4 dB (550U)
  • Flat frequency response
  • Excellent return loss
  • Unit-to-unit performance repeatability
  • Rugged ceramic construction
