What is a Capacitor Array?
A capacitor array is a group of capacitors that are contained within the same package. A capacitor array is comparable to a capacitor network but the difference is that they do not connect to each other. A capacitor array contains capacitors which form no connections between the other components.
Types of Capacitor Arrays
There are many different kinds of capacitor arrays and at Future Electronics we stock many of the most common types categorized by capacitance, number of elements, tolerance, packaging type and maximum working voltage. The parametric filters on our website can help refine your search results depending on the required specifications.
The most common sizes for capacitance are 100 pF, 10 nF and 100 nF. We also carry capacitor arrays with capacitance as high as 1 µF. Maximum working voltage can be between 6.3 V and 100 k, with the most common capacitor arrays having a maximum working voltage of 16 V, 50 V or 100 V.
Capacitor Arrays from Future Electronics
Future Electronics has a full selection of capacitor arrays from several manufacturers that can be used as a switched capacitor array, split capacitor array or any other type of capacitor array. Simply choose from the capacitor array technical attributes below and your search results will quickly be narrowed to match your specific capacitor array application needs.
If you have a preferred brand, we deal with several manufacturers such as AVX, Murata, TDK or Vishay, among other manufacturers. You can easily refine your capacitor array product search results by clicking your preferred capacitor array brand below from our list of manufacturers.
Applications for Capacitor Arrays:
Capacitor arrays have several applications. Key markets are mobile phones, cordless phones, computer motherboards and peripherals, digital set top boxes, RF Modems, RF amplifiers, networking products, automotive applications, LC filters and medical devices.
Choosing the Right Capacitor Array:
When you are looking for the right capacitor arrays, with the FutureElectronics.com parametric search, you can filter the results by various attributes: by Capacitance (22 pF, 100 pF, 10 nF, 100 nF,…), Tolerance (±20 %, ±10 %, ±5 %) and Maximum Working Voltage (up to 100 V) to name a few. You will be able to find the right capacitor array such as a split capacitor array or a switched capacitor array.
Capacitor Arrays in Production Ready Packaging or R&D Quantities
If the quantity of capacitor arrays required is less than a full reel, we offer customers many of our capacitor array products in tube, tray or individual quantities that will avoid unneeded surplus.
In addition, Future Electronics offers clients a unique bonded inventory program that is designed to eliminate potential problems that may arise from an unpredictable supply of products containing raw metals and products with erratic or long lead times.
