What is a Single Layer Ceramic Capacitor?
Single-layer capacitors consist of thin-film dielectrics that are deposited on ceramic and integrated-circuit substrates and then metallized with aluminum in order to form capacitive components. The most common dielectrics used in single layer capacitors are silicon dioxide and silicon nitride.
Types of Single Layer Ceramic Capacitors
There are several different kinds of single layer ceramic capacitors. At Future Electronics we stock many of the most common types categorized by tolerance, dielectric, capacitance, rated voltage, case size/dimension and packaging type. The parametric filters on our website can help refine your search results depending on the required specifications.
The most common sizes for capacitance are 470 pF, 1 nF, 2.2 nF and 10 nF. We also carry single layer ceramic capacitors with capacitance up to 470 nF. The rated voltage can be between 6.3 V and 40 kV, with the most common single layer ceramic capacitors having a rated voltage of 1 kV.
