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.
