|Broadband and Ultra-Broadband capacitors from Passive Plus||July 15, 2013|
The US company Passive Plus has developed a series of Broadband and Ultra-Broadband capacitors: the 0402BB103, 0402BB104, and the 0201BB104. These capacitors are intended primarily for decoupling RF signals and DC. The applications for which they are intended require small, surface-mountable devices that provide low RF impedances and low insertion losses, across extremely large RF bandwidths and temperatures typically ranging from -55 to +85 ºC.
Existing single-layer and multilayer capacitors cannot provide a very wide band of operating frequencies and low resistance and small insertion losses in all frequency subbands. In new capacitors Passive Plus overcome existing limitations that allows a very wide frequency band.
The specific characteristics of the models 0402BB103, 0402BB104 and 0201BB104 are, respectively:
New capacitors from Passive PLUS are designed for optoelectronic high-speed data systems, transmit/receive optical subassemblies, SONET (Synchronous Optical Networks), broadband test equipment, broadband microwave and millimeter wave amplifiers and oscillators.
