Intertechnology Inc. introduced a new multilayer ceramic chip capacitor (MLCC)
featuring an integrated resistor and low electrostrictive ceramic formulation.
For high-pulse-current applications, the VJ controlled discharge capacitor
(CDC) offers high reliability, high voltage ratings from 1,000 VDC to 1,500
VDC, and a capacitance range from 33 nF to 560 nF.
integration of a high-capacitance MLCC with a bleed resistor on its surface
allows the VJ CDC to discharge more rapidly, while also reducing board space
requirements and assembly costs. Typical applications for the device include
detonation devices (munitions, pyrotechnics, blasting) and electronic fuzing.
capacitor is manufactured in Noble Metal Electrode (NME) technology with a wet
build process. The VJ CDC features a low electrostrictive ceramic formulation for
repeated charge and discharge cycles, allowing the device to achieve very high
The VJ CDC
is offered in the 3040, 3640, and 4044 case sizes, and is available with X7R
and X5P dielectrics. The device features a wide capacitance range of 33 nF to
220 nF in the 3040 case size, 47 nF to 330 nF in the 3640, and 100 nF to 560 nF
in the 4044.
capacitor offers a high operating temperature range of - 55 °C to + 125 °C and
a temperature coefficient of capacitance (TCC) of ± 10 % from - 55 °C to + 85
°C with the X5P dielectric and ± 15 % from - 55 °C to + 125 °C for the X7R. The
device is halogen-free according to the IEC 61249-2-21 definition.
