Knowles Precision Devices released the 100nF capacitor within its V-Series of single layer capacitors.

The 100nF is a high frequency, wire bondable single layer capacitor, making it ideally suited for GaN and GaAs amplifier applications where small size and microwave performance are critical.

The new 100nF, are designed to offer higher capacitance in a smaller footprint. The 100nF leverages class II dielectric material with X7R characteristics for DC blocking and RF bypassing in a broad frequency range.


According to the company, additional uses and specs include:

  • Filtering applications.
  • Tuning applications.
  • Coupling applications.
  • Temperature stability.
  • RoHS compliant.
  • Best possible moisture sensitivity level (MSL-1).
  • High capacitance density.
  • Attached using conductive epoxy or be AuSn solder mounted.
  • Can help eliminate supply line noise.
