ATC Introduces the 550S Series Ultra-Broadband Capacitor (UBC)TM with 50 WVDC Rating


HUNTINGTON STATION, N.Y., Oct. 3, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ATC's new 550S Ultra-Broadband Capacitor (UBC) has been designed and manufactured with the highest quality materials to provide reliable and repeatable ultra-broadband performance from 16 KHz through 40+ GHz. This unique component, rated at 50 WVDC, provides low insertion loss, flat frequency response and an excellent match over multiple octaves of frequency spectrum.

The 550S has been engineered in a one piece orientation-insensitive 0603 SMT package, making it fully compatible with high speed automated pick-and-place manufacturing operations. Its superior broadband performance and reliability make it ideal for the requirements of the most stringent ultra-broadband applications.

Typical Applications:

  • Optoelectronics/high speed data
  • Transimpedance amplifiers
  • Broadband test equipment
  • Broadband microwave/millimeter-wave


  • EIA 0603 case size
  • Rated at 50 WVDC
  • Capacitance: 100 nF
  • 160 KHz to 40+ GHz
  • Insertion loss: less than 1 dB typical
  • One piece ceramic construction
  • Orientation insensitive


  • Ultra-broadband performance
  • Low insertion loss
  • Flat frequency response
  • Excellent return loss
  • Rated at 50 wvdc
