Ceramic Capacitors

RG ALLEN Ceramic Capacitors

Capacitors are found in virtually all types of electronic applications, systems and circuits. Multilayer ceramic capacitors are the most produced and the most used type of capacitors found in electronic equipment. This includes everything from the commercial, scientific, medical or industrial fields or any other field where electronics are used.

A ceramic capacitor is a fixed value capacitor in which ceramic material acts as the dielectric. It is constructed of two or more alternating layers of ceramic and a metal layer acting as the electrodes. The composition of the ceramic material defines the electrical behavior and therefore applications. Ceramic Capacitors exhibit low parasitics and excellent EMI filtering capabilities. In a multilayer configuration, they display high capacitance values and various voltage ratings over a wide temperature range. Multiple styles are available such as MLCC chips, leaded capacitors, stacked capacitors and capacitors that utilize unique geometries.

RG Allen features wide capacitance ranges available in many popular sizes. See individual product pages for detailed capacitance specifications or contact one of our Sales Representatives for additional information.
