What is a Ceramic Capacitor?

A ceramic capacitor is a fixed capacitor where the ceramic material acts as the dielectric. A ceramic capacitor is constructed of either two or more alternating layers of ceramic as well as a metal layer acting as the electrodes. The ceramic material’s composition defines the electrical behavior and therefore application of the capacitor. Ceramic capacitors are divided into stability classes. Class 1 ceramic capacitors offer high stability and low losses for resonant circuit applications. Class 2 ceramic capacitors offer high volumetric efficiency for by-pass, buffer and coupling applications. Class 3 ceramic capacitors are general use capacitors which are adequate for applications that do not require high insulation resistance and capacity stability. Multilayer ceramic capacitors are the most produced and used type of capacitors in electronic equipment.

Types of Ceramic capacitors

There are several different kinds of ceramic capacitors at Future Electronics. We stock many of the most common types categorized by several parameters including dielectric, capacitance, tolerance, case size / dimension, rated voltage and packaging type. Our parametric filters will allow you to refine your search results according to the required specifications.

Ceramic capacitors from Future Electronics

Future Electronics has a wide range of ceramic capacitors from several manufacturers that can be used for your circuits. By going through the selection you will find the right monolithic ceramic capacitor, ceramic disc capacitor, high voltage ceramic capacitor, low ESR ceramic capacitor, multilayer ceramic capacitor or any other type of ceramic capacitor. Once you decide if you need capacitor arrays, multilayer ceramic capacitors, single layer ceramic capacitors or specialty ceramic capacitors, you will be able to choose from their technical attributes and your search results will be narrowed to match your specific ceramic capacitor application needs.

We deal with several manufacturers such as AVX, Murata, TDK, Samsung, Vishay or Yageo America Corporation, among others. You can easily refine your ceramic capacitor product search results by clicking your preferred ceramic capacitor brand from the list of manufacturers below.

Applications for Ceramic Capacitors:

Capacitors are found in virtually all types of electronic applications, systems and circuits. Multilayer ceramic capacitors are the most produced and the most used type of capacitors found in electronic equipment. This includes everything from the commercial, scientific, medical or industrial fields or any other field where electronics are used.

Choosing the Right Ceramic Capacitor:

With the FutureElectronics.com parametric search, when looking for the right ceramic capacitors, you can filter the results by category. We carry the following categories of ceramic capacitors:

  • Capacitor arrays
  • Multilayer ceramic capacitors
  • Single layer ceramic capacitors
  • Specialty ceramic capacitors

Once you choose the ceramic capacitor category, you can narrow them down by various attributes: by dielectric, capacitance and rated voltage to name a few. You will be able to find the right ceramic disc capacitor, monolithic ceramic capacitor, high voltage ceramic capacitor, multilayer ceramic capacitor, low ESR ceramic capacitor and any other type of ceramic capacitor for your circuits by using these filters.

Ceramic Capacitors in Production Ready Packaging or R&D Quantities

If the quantity of ceramic capacitors you require is less than a full reel, we offer to our customers several of our ceramic capacitors in tray, tube or individual quantities that will help you avoid unneeded surplus.

Future Electronics also offers its clients a unique bonded inventory program designed to eliminate potential problems that may arise from an unpredictable supply of products that could contain raw metals and products with erratic or long lead times. Talk with your nearest Future Electronics branch and find out more on how you and your company can avoid possible shortages.
