Tecate's Newest Multilayer Ceramic Capacitors for Tip & Ring Applications
Poway, CA, June 3, 2002. . .The new Type CMT multilayer ceramic chip capacitor has today been announced by Tecate Industries, inc., a premier manufacturer of capacitors for the computer, telecommunications, contract manufacturing, industrial, and automotive markets. Specifically engineered for filtering in telephone line tip and ring applications, the new component is an ideal replacements for larger, leaded film capacitors in a broad array of communications systems and networks.
By specifying Tecate's CMT chips in favor of traditional leaded film devices, engineers are able to conserve valuable PC board real estate, thus reducing the overall weight, and size of products. Further, as these multilayer ceramic capacitors feature standard surface mounting properties, they are uniquely appropriate for compact and portable designs. They additionally offer low ESR, excellent high frequency filtering and improved temperature performance over film capacitors.
The Type CMT is comprised of capacitors in 7 EIA sizes ranging from 0805 to 2225, in X7R or Z5U dielectrics, and provided with capacitance ratings ranging from .001 micro F to 1.2 micro F. Available capacitance tolerances are +/-5%, +/-10%, and +/-20% for the X7R components, and +/-20% for the Z5U parts. Those with an X7R dielectric possess a TCC of +/-15% from an operating temperature range of from -55°C to +125°C, whereas those with a Z5U dielectric offer a TCC of +22% to -56% from the operating temperature range of +10°C to +85°C. A choice of 5 standard voltage ratings ranging from 200 Vdc to 600 Vdc is offered.
Tecate's Type CMT capacitors are priced starting at $0.05 each in quantities of 10,000. Delivery is from stock to 8 weeks.
