Extended Range of CeraLink™ Capacitors

Extended Range of CeraLink™ Capacitors

TDK Corporation presents an extended range of CeraLink™ capacitors based on PLZT ceramic (lead lanthanum zirconate titanate). The low profile (LP) types for SMD soldering are now available with a voltage of 500 V and a capacitance of 1 µF, or with 700 V and 0.5 µF. The capacitors are characterized by their extreme volume efficiency and compactness. The dimensions of the variants with L-style terminal, for example, are 10.84 mm x 7.85 mm x 4 mm. Thanks to the compactness and the permissible maximum temperature of 150 °C, these capacitors can, for example, be embedded as snubber capacitors directly into IGBT modules.

The new types with J-style terminal have an even more compact design, with dimensions of just 7.14 mm x 7.85 mm x 4 mm. One great advantage of the CeraLink LP types is their extremely low ESL of just 2.5 nH. 

The CeraLink solder-pin (SP) type is available for higher capacitance values of 20 µF and 10 µF for the rated voltages of 500 V and 700 V, respectively. This type has a very low ESL of just 3.5 nH.
