Holystone has announced the SMC series of multilayer ceramic chip capacitors and the HSC series with higher temperature ratings of 150, 200, and 250 °C. Well suited for switch-mode power supply filters, the stacked design of the SMC and HSC series offers very high capacitance, and low ESR, exceeding the capabilities of wet tantalum designs.
Both series are offered in multiple footprints, in EIA size codes 1812, 2220, 1825 and 2225; all with lead frame stand-offs to prevent mechanical and thermal stress. They have J, L, and N leaded configurations for through hole or surface mount use. Capacitance ranges are from 470 nF to 35 uF in the 125 °C rating, with rated voltages ranging from 25 to 1000 V. 150°C and higher temperatures will have slightly lower nominal capacitance ratings. All are available with HIREL screening. The entire series is RoHS compliant.
The SMC and HSC series of multilayer ceramic stacked chip capacitors are available in 6 weeks for sample quantities, with production quantities in 6-8 weeks ARO. Pricing for a 2225 size capacitor with 2 stacked chips with10µf at 50V are being quoted at $ 1.75 each in a quantity of >1000 pieces.
