RS Components (RS) has introduced a range of Multi-Layer Ceramic Capacitors (MLCCs) to its passive components offering.

Available in standard 7" or 13" reel quantities direct from RS stock, these multi layer ceramic capacitors provide customers with a reduced-cost option on general-purpose capacitor parts ready for automatic pick-and-placement. 

RS’ low inductance capacitors target a broad range of applications including mobile consumer devices, video and tuner designs, and even high-frequency applications.

The compact RS MLCC series is available in the popular 0603 (1.6 x 0.8 x 0.8mm) size and features a wide capacitance range from 1000pF to 10,0000pF (1 to 10nF), including 1000, 2200, 4700, 6800 and 10000pF devices and a choice of voltage ratings of 16, 50 or 100V. Devices in the range also come in the 0402 (1 x 0.5 x 0.5mm) size, with voltage ratings of 16V and 50V.

Most devices in the range feature an EIA Class 2 temperature-stable X7R dielectric, operating across the -55°C to +125°C temperature range with capacitance tolerances of +/-15%, and are ideal for decoupling applications. Other options in the range use EIA Class 1 temperature-compensating C0G (NP0) materials.

Conforming to EIAJ RC3402, the RS multi-layer ceramic capacitors are also compatible with EIA RS198 and IEC PUB. 384-10 standards, offer excellent solderability characteristics, and are suitable for flow and reflow soldering. 

The RS MLCC series is available now direct from RS stock for same-day despatch.
