Passive Plus, Inc. Broadband Capacitors: 0201BB & 0402BB

February 13, 2020

Passive Plus, Inc. (PPI) customers requiring surface-mountable capacitors that provide resonance-free, low insertion loss, low reflection operation over extremely large RF bandwidths will be well served by Passive Plus's BB series. The 0201BB and 0402BB case sizes are available in 10nF and 100nF, and Tin (RoHS), Tin/Lead or Gold terminations.

These capacitors are intended primarily for coupling RF signals or, occasionally, for bypassing them to ground while blocking DC. The applications for which they are intended require small, surface-mountable devices that provide low RF impedances, i.e., low insertion losses and reflections, across extremely large RF bandwidths and temperatures typically ranging from -55 to +125 C.

Applications for the Broadband series are primarily found in the "signal integrity" market:

  •  Optoelectronics/highspeed data
  •  ROSA/TOSA (Transmit/Receive optical subassemblies)
  •  SONET (Synchronous Optical Networks)
  •  Broadband test equipment
  •  Broadband microwave and millimeter wave amplifiers and oscillators

0201BB104KW160 (.020” x .010”):

* Frequency range: 16 kHz (- 3 dB point) to > 40 GHz 

* 16 WVDC

* Insertion Loss: < 1 db, typical

* Available in Tin (RoHS Compliant), Tin/Lead,

* Frequency range:16 kHz (-3 dB point) to 50 GHz

* 50 WVDC

* Insertion Loss: < 1.2 db, typical

* Available in Tin (RoHS Compliant), Tin/Lead,

   and Gold terminations
