MIL grade ceramic switch mode power supply capacitors support high frequencies

August 24, 2012 // By Julien Happich
API Technologies has added high reliability MIL grade switch mode power supply (SMPS) ceramic capacitors to its Spectrum Control product line.

These high-speed capacitors feature extremely low equivalent series resistance (ESR) and equivalent series inductance (ESL), as well as predictable performance characteristics with changes in temperature, voltage and frequency. They are suitable for high reliability and high frequency applications. A commercial industrial grade alternative in a non-military package configuration is also available.

The capacitors are designed for continuous operation at full-rated voltage across their entire temperature range. They are maintenance free and non-toxic. Applications include higher frequency switching power supplies such as resonant DC-DC power supplies and pulse modulated DC-DC converters, or for applications requiring bulk capacitance or energy storage.
