Knowles capacitor brands Novacap and Syfer Technology are jointly launching a new range of high temperature MLC chip capacitors at HiTEC 2016, which will be held at the Albuquerque Marriott Pyramid North, New Mexico on May 10 and 11.

The HiT range of MLCCs has an operating temperature range of -55 to +200ºC, is suitable for a variety of high temperature applications and offers tin over nickel terminations – not previously available.

The range’s wide capacitance range of 4.7 pF to 3.3 uF, over the rated voltage spread 16 to 630 V dc makes it specifically suitable for applications in oil exploration, geothermal, military, automotive under-hood and avionics. Stable and ultra stable dielectric options, C0G & X7R materials, are both RoSH compliant and lead free. This range is manufactured to exacting standards using Knowles’ screen printing process to provide a high quality component suitable for demanding applications.

HiTEC 2016 continues the tradition of providing the leading biennial conference dedicated to the advancement and dissemination of knowledge of the high temperature electronics industry. Under the organizational management of the International Microelectronics Assembly and Packaging Society (IMAPS), HiTEC 2016 is the forum for presenting leading high temperature electronics research results and application requirements. It creates an opportunity for networking with colleagues from around the world working to advance high temperature electronics.
