What is a Specialty Ceramic Capacitor?

Specialty ceramic capacitors are used in specific applications such as high frequency, high voltage, high temperature or harsh environment applications where their performance is critical and where they are not expected to fail as long as they are properly installed and used within the manufacturer’s guidelines.

Types of Specialty Ceramic Capacitors

There are many different kinds of specialty ceramic capacitors and at Future Electronics we stock many of the most common types categorized by capacitance, dielectric, tolerance, rated voltage, packaging type and case size/dimension. The parametric filters on our website can help refine your search results depending on the required specifications.

The most common sizes for capacitance are 1 nF, 2.2 nF, 4.7 nF and 10 nF. We also carry specialty ceramic capacitors with capacitance as high as 33 F. Rated voltage can be between 6.3 V and 50 kV, with the most common specialty ceramic capacitors having a rated voltage of 100 V, 200 V or 1 kV.

Specialty Ceramic Capacitors from Future Electronics

Future Electronics has a full selection of specialty ceramic capacitors from several manufacturers that can be used as a ceramic disk capacitor or any other type of specialty ceramic capacitor. Simply choose from the specialty ceramic capacitor technical attributes below and your search results will quickly be narrowed to match your specific specialty ceramic capacitor application needs.

If you have a preferred brand, we deal with several manufacturers such as AVX, Murata, TDK, Vishay or Johanson Manufacturing Corp. You can easily refine your specialty ceramic capacitor product search results by clicking your preferred specialty ceramic capacitor brand below from our list of manufacturers.

Applications for Specialty Ceramic Capacitors:

Specialty ceramic capacitors are consumed in several electronics market segments including the following fields:

  • Defense
  • Aerospace
  • Medical
  • Marine
  • Mining
  • Railroad
  • Nuclear power plants
  • Downhole pump and oil & gas equipment
  • Automotive under-the-hood components
  • Specialty power supplies
  • Lighting ballasts
  • Instrumentation and control equipment
  • Telecommunications infrastructure equipment

Choosing the Right Specialty Ceramic Capacitor:

When you are looking for the right specialty ceramic capacitors, with the parametric search, you can filter the results by various attributes: by Capacitance (10 pF, 1 nF, 2.2 nF, 4.7 nF, 10 nF…), Tolerance (±20 %, ±10 %,…) and Rated Voltage (up to 50 kV) to name a few. You will be able to find the right specialty ceramic capacitor such as a ceramic disc capacitor.

Specialty Ceramic Capacitors in Production Ready Packaging or R&D Quantities

If the quantity of specialty ceramic capacitors required is less than a full reel, we offer customers many of our specialty ceramic capacitor 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. Talk with your nearest Future Electronics branch and find out more on how you and your company can avoid possible shortages.
