Ceramic Caps Offer Industry-High Capacitance

Vishay Intertechnology’s HVCC series radial-leaded, high-voltage single-layer ceramic disc capacitors are trumpeted as the industry's only such components to deliver high capacitance values of 2 nF. The capacitors offer guaranteed load life performance of 1,000 hours at 125% rated voltage and at +105°C. The dissipation factor is < 1.5 %.

The components offer a capacitance range from 100 pF to 2,000 pF with standard tolerances of ± 20%, voltages from 10 kVdc to 15 kVdc, and operate over a temperature range of -30°C to +105°C. HVCC series capacitors are also available with a 20-kVdc voltage rating, ± 10 % tolerance, and custom lead styles on request.

Components consist of a silver-plated ceramic disc with tinned copper-clad steel connection leads offering 0.6 mm and 0.8 mm diameters. The capacitors are available with straight leads with spacing of 9.5 mm and 12.5 mm. The RoHS-compliant components' encapsulation is made of flame-resistant epoxy resin in accordance with UL 94 V-0.  Samples are available now from Vishay. Production quantities are available with lead times of eight weeks. For more details, checkout the HVCC series datasheet.
