Wireless Components  supplies a range of technologically advanced RF, microwave and mmW surface-mount capacitors sourced from Richardson Electronics.  

Richardson Electronics improves ultra-broadband circuit designs with the 550L Series UBCTM or ultra-broadband capacitors from American Technical Ceramics (ATC), designed to provide reliable and repeatable ultra-broadband performance from 16 kHz to over 40 GHz.  

Key features of the ultra-broadband capacitors: 

  • Extended operating temperature range of -55ºC to +125ºC
  • Suitable for defence/ aerospace applications
  • One-piece, orientation-insensitive package
  • Rugged ceramic construction
  • Ultra-low insertion loss (< 0.5 dB)
  • Flat frequency response
  • Excellent return loss
  • RoHS compliant terminations (gold-plated or tin-plated available)

The 100nF capacitors are ideal for DC blocking, coupling and feedback applications requiring ultra-broadband performance.  

The applications include Receive and Transmit Optical Subassembly (ROSA/TOSA) circuits, trans-impedance amplifier (TIA) designs, optoelectronic high-speed data circuits (such as SONET), and broadband test equipment.  

Datasheets and samples for the ATC 550L ultra-broadband capacitors are available from Richardson Electronics.
