RCD Components Launches Higher Capacity Multi-Layer Capacitors

Manchester, New Hampshire (USA) – RCD Components Inc., a leading manufacturer of passive components, today expanded its highest capacitance range of its multilayer ceramic chip capacitor (MLCCs) Series CE. Their high-capacitance-value capacitors are available in capacitance values up to 100 microfarads in case sizes from 1210 to 0402, depending on the C/V value.

RCD’s latest R&D project offers an economical alternative to its more conventional tantalum counterpart. RCD’s ability to concentrate on research and development allows us to continually design cutting edge ceramics in a more efficient manner.

Usually, tantalum capacitors with a range of 10-100µF are used for smoothing circuit in power supplies and IC decoupling. However, MLCCs with this extended capacitance range enable ESR levels that are low, for better decoupling performance as well as a more stable frequency than that of a tantalum capacitor, and in a small package size.

RCD’s full line of MLCCs includes capacitance values down to 0.47 picofarad and voltages from 6.3V to 4KV. They are available in a full range of case sizes from 0201 through 3035 size devices. Prices starting as low as 2-tenths of a cent (to >$.50 each depending on quantity, case size, voltage, and value etc.)

RCD’s new catalog is available at no charge from or by calling 1.877.RCD-COMP (723.2667). The catalog datasheets are also downloadable from their website.
