The 550L Ultra-Broadband Capacitor from American Technical Ceramics (ATC) lives up to its name with a bandwidth of 16 kHz to past 40 GHz. Supplied in an EIA 0402 case size, it is rated for 100 nF capacitance. The capacitor features RoHS-compliant terminations and can be supplied with gold terminations. It is ideal for broadband RF/microwave circuit, optical communications, and measurement applications. The capacitor features one-piece construction, insertion loss of less than 0.5 dB, and extremely flat frequency response. It is orientation insensitive for ease of mounting and assembly. Visitors to the ATC web site can register for 25 free samples.
