Industry’s first surface-mount X7R multilayer ceramic chip capacitors (MLCCs) designed to prevent surface arc-over. The devices provide maximum capacitance in high-voltage ratings and an increased capacitor voltage breakdown.

HVArc Guard® MLCCs feature a unique, patented internal design structure that prevents surface arc-over at high voltages. This design allows for higher capacitances than standard high-voltage MLCCs, and facilitates the use of smaller case sizes in high-voltage products, allowing for device miniaturization and reducing component cost.
 

Features

  • Offer capacitance ranges of 10 pF to 0.27 pF.
  • Offered in 0805, 1206, 1210, 1808, 1812, 2220, and 2225 case sizes.
  • Available with C0G and X7R dielectrics.
  • Eliminate the need to encapsulate capacitors with a conformal coating
  • Twice the standard voltage breakdown with ratings from 250 VDC to 2500 VDC
