Passive Plus Inc. (PPI) has introduced the 01005BB104 and 0201BB104 ultra-broadband 100 nF multilayer ceramic capacitors. With a case measuring 16 × 8 × 8 mils, the 01005BB104 is the industry’s smallest 100 nF broadband part characterized for RF performance, according to Passive Plus. The capacitor has resonant-free DC blocking and RF coupling from 16 kHz, at the lower 3 dB frequency, to beyond 67 GHz. On suitable substrates, insertion loss is less than 1 dB, and return loss is better than -15 dB. The 01005BB104 is rated at a DC working voltage (WVDC) of 4 V and is available in a nickel-tin termination.
The 0201BB104 also provides resonant-free DC blocking and RF coupling from 16 kHz to beyond 65 GHz, with less than 1.3 dB insertion loss and better than -15 dB return loss on suitable substrates. Up to 40 GHz, the insertion loss is typically under 0.6 dB and return loss better than -20 dB. The 0201BB104 is rated at a WVDC of 16 V and measures 24 × 12 × 12 mils. It is available in nickel-tin and gold terminations.
All lots of the 01005BB104 and 0201BB104 are tested at RF frequencies to insure performance consistency. Modelithics offers RF models for both types, enabling accurate design simulation on various substrates and with a range of mounting pad dimensions. Modelithics models are offered with free 30-day trials.
Passive Plus offers a wide variety of ultra-high-Q, broadband, and general-purpose multi-layer ceramic capacitors for commercial and military applications.
