Substrate Scalable: CAP-PPI-0201BB-001

0201 bbThe CAP-PPI-0201BB-001 is a substrate scalable Global Model™ for the Passive Plus P/N 0201BB surface mount chip capacitor family. The models are for use with microstrip applications and account for substrate (or printed circuit board) related parasitic effects up to 65 GHz. Models account for up to two higher-order resonant frequency pairs beyond the fundamental series resonant frequency.

Passive Plus, Inc. Expands High Reliability Capability With 100% CSAM Inspection

Passive Plus Inc. (PPI) has added an industry leading 100% automated CSAM (C Mode Scanning Acoustic Microscopy) internal inspection to all of its high power 2225, 3838, 6040 and 7676 capacitor series RF capacitors. The primary benefit of 100% CSAM internal inspection is increased reliability, by screening out electrically undetectable internal defects such as voids, cracks, de-laminations or electrode dis-continuities.
