ATC 400z PR PhotoRichardson RFPD Inc. announces immediate availability and full design support capabilities of the 400Z series of precision tolerance NPO RF and microwave capacitors from American Technical Ceramics Corp. (ATC).

The 400Z series is manufactured with the highest quality materials and a thin film process to provide reliable and repeatable performance. They offer best-in-class tolerances over a wide range of capacitance values, as well as low equivalent series resistance (ESR) and high series resonant frequency (FSR). The 400Z capacitors are available in an EIA 0201 SMT package, making them fully-compatible with high-speed, automated pick-and-place manufacturing.

Their high electrical and thermal conductivity and high stability over temperature make these devices suitable for a variety of critical small- and large-signal RF and microwave applications, including filter networks, matching networks, high-Q frequency sources, tuning, coupling, bypass, and DC blocking.

Key features of the ATC 400Z Seriescapacitors include:

  • Case size: EIA 0201 (0603 metric)
  • Capacitance range: 0.1 pF to 22 pF
  • Tolerances: to +/-0.02 pF
  • Voltage rating: up to 100 WVDC
  • Operating temperature range: -55 ºC to +125 ºC
  • Ultra-stable performance
