ATC Introduces the 400Z Precision Tolerance NPO RF Microwave SMT Capacitor


HUNTINGTON STATION, N.Y., Oct. 10, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ATC announces the introduction of the 400Z Series, Precision Tolerance NPO RF / Microwave SMT capacitor.

The 400Z Series has been designed and manufactured with the highest quality materials and a precision thin film process to provide reliable and repeatable performance. This unique component offers the tightest tolerances available (0.02 pF), as well as low ESR, and high series resonant frequency.

The 400Z has been engineered in an EIA 0201 SMT package, making it fully compatible with high speed automated pick-and-place manufacturing operations. This product is superior for critical tuning applications where exact capacitance values are required. The precision capacitance tolerance of the 400Z Series greatly reduces the need for end process tuning adding an extra benefit in reduced manufacturing cost. Its superior stable performance and reliability make it ideal for the full range of critical tuning applications as well as DC blocking and bypassing applications.
