Stacked Film Chips for High-Loss, Low-Stability MLCC Capacitors
NIC Components introduced two ranges of stacked film chip capacitors. The NSHC and NSPU series combine small component size with stability during voltage, stability over time, immunity from cracking, and low dielectric loss, making them suitable for high-loss and less-stable MLCC capacitors. Both ranges are RoHS compliant. The NSHC uses a stacked metallized polyphenylene sulfide (PPS) film construction that helps it achieve an operating temperature range of up to -55ºC to +125ºC with high soldering heat resistance. Available case sizes of 0603, 0805, 1206, 1210, 1913 and 2416 allow capacitance values from 100pF to 0.22µF with voltage ratings of 16VDC or 50VDC. The NSHC delivers features high capacitance value using stacked metallized acrylic resin film construction. Parts are available in 0805, 1206 and 1210 formats with capacitance values range from 0.068µF to 1.0µF with a 16VDC voltage rating. Its Operating temperature range is -40ºC to +85ºC. Both series are supplied in tape-and-reel packaging designed for reflow soldering processes. Typical unit prices are $0.09 ~$0.30.
