PPI offers the versatile C and P series multi-layer ceramic capacitors (MLCCs) designed to meet the demands of high-performance circuitry. These capacitors boast a range of impressive features, including High-Q, High Power, Low ESR/ESL, Low Noise, High Self-Resonance, and ultra stable performance. With such characteristics, they excel in various functional applications such as tuning, bypass, coupling, feedback, D.C. blocking, and impedance matching.
The C and P series capacitors find their typical circuit applications in a wide array of devices, including UHF/Microwave RF Power Amplifiers, Mixers, Oscillators, Filter Networks, Low Noise Amplifiers, Timing Circuits, and Delay Lines. These capacitors are specifically designed and manufactured to comply with the rigorous requirements of MIL-PRF-55681 and MIL-PRF-123, ensuring their reliability and performance under demanding conditions.
A notable distinction between the C and P series capacitors is their Temperature Coefficient (TCC) values, which determine their stability across temperature ranges. The C series offers an exceptional advantage with a TCC of 0 ± 30 PPM/°C (-55°C to 125°C) and 0 ± 60 PPM/°C (>125˚C to 200˚C), whereas the P series exhibits a TCC of +90 ± 20 PPM/°C (-55°C to 200°C). This disparity in TCC enables designers to select the appropriate series based on the specific temperature requirements of their applications.
PPI provides Engineering Design Kits for the 0505 and 1111 case sizes with predetermined values and Custom Kits designed based on the engineer’s requirements. These kits allow designers to explore and experiment with different configurations, optimizing their circuit designs.
PPI offers custom assemblies for the 1111, 2225, 3838, 6040, and 7676 case sizes, catering to the specific needs and requirements of customers.
With the availability of both Magnetic and Non-Magnetic terminations, PPI’s C and P series capacitors offer versatility and compatibility across a wide range of applications ensuring a seamless integration into various circuit designs, providing reliable and stable performance. PPI’s C and P series capacitors are an excellent choice for engineers seeking high-performance capacitors that meet stringent standards and deliver exceptional stability in demanding environments.
