In addition to our smaller case size 01005BB and the 0201BB Broadband Capacitors, Passive Plus, Inc. (PPI) has developed larger Broadband Capacitors in three larger case sizes: 0402BB, 0603BB, and 0805BB. Values available are 10nF (10,000 pF) and 100nF (100,000 pF), depending on case size.

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

Customers requiring surface-mountable, 10nF or 100nF capacitors that provide resonance-free, low insertion loss, low reflection operation over extremely large RF bandwidths will be well served by PPI’s Broadband series.
