A Mica Capacitor is a passive, electronic waveform-shaping device (typically less than 0.1uF capacitance). They are extremely shock resistant, include a high dV/dt rating, and maintain their capacitance over a very wide temperature range. Because of these desirable characteristics, mica capacitors can be used in high-power, high-current RF broadcast transmitters, defense electronics (jet aircraft, missiles, etc.), and also in power conversion circuits for low-capacitance snubber applications. These capacitors are found in radio/TV transmitters, cable TV amplifiers, avionics, and high-voltage inverter circuits. Specific characteristics that should be considered when choosing the appropriate mica capacitor include rated voltage (VDC), Peak RMS Voltage (Vrms), and Case/Package Type.
Richardson RFPD has partnered with industry-leading manufacturer Cornell Dubilier to provide an extensive selection of mica capacitors.
The parametric search filter allows the user to quickly find the parts they need by filtering the results in real-time.
Additionally, some attributes allow for the conversion of their base type to different types. For example, the attribute group for minimum frequency is shown in MHz. The values can be converted to be shown in KHz or GHz by selecting the conversion type from the ‘Select Conversion’ drop down list.
Any Attribute that does not interest the user can be hidden by clicking on the ‘X” in the upper-right corner of the attribute. To show any hidden attributes, simply click the ‘Unhide Attributes’ button in the bottom of the parametric search filter.
If you are experiencing performance issues, please use a newer browser such as Chrome or Firefox, or disable the ability of the filter to perform dynamic updates by deselecting the checkbox titled ‘Allow Filters to Dynamically Update Parametric Search Attributes’.
