High reliability MIL grade ceramic SMPS capacitors target high frequency switching power supplies

August 24, 2012 // By Paul Buckley
API Technologies Corp. has added high reliability MIL grade SMPS ceramic capacitors to the company’s Spectrum Control product line.

The high-speed switch mode power supply (SMPS) capacitors feature low equivalent series resistance (ESR) and equivalent series inductance (ESL) as well as predictable performance characteristics that address changes in temperature, voltage and frequency. They are ideal for high reliability and high frequency applications. A commercial industrial grade alternative in a non-military package configuration is also available.

Ceramic SMPS 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.
