Broadband Chip Capacitors from Passive Plus
Chip capacitors on tape.
Huntington, NY — The broadband capacitor 0201BB104KW160 from Passive Plus is intended primarily for coupling RF signals or bypassing them to ground over extraordinarily large RF bandwidths. The part is a 100nF capacitor and offers resonance-free, low-loss operation from 16kHz (-3dB point) to >50GHz at 16V with an insertion loss of <1dB.

These components fulfill design needs that require small, surface-mountable (SMT) devices with low insertion losses and reflections across RF frequencies extending from the tens of kHz to the tens of GHz, and temperatures typically ranging from -55 to +125°C. Applications are primarily found in the "signal integrity" market — optoelectronics/high-speed data; ROSA/TOSA (Transmit/Receive optical subassemblies); SONET (Synchronous Optical Networks); broadband test equipment; and broadband microwave and millimeter wave amplifiers and oscillators.

The BB series will fulfill requirements for surface-mountable, 10nF or 100nF X7R capacitors that provide resonance-free, low insertion loss, low reflection operation over extremely large RF bandwidths.
