Capacitor networks or arrays are devices of two or more capacitors in a single surface, through-hole or chassis mount package. The capacitors may be isolated from each other or connected in a bussed circuit type. Single or multiple capacitance values range from 10 pf to 80 µf and 5% to 20% tolerance. Dielectric materials include ceramic, metalized polymer, and polypropylene in 6.3 to 440 rated operating voltage.
Capacitance: A measurement of the device’s ability to store an electrical charge. It is measured in Farads (F) and uses the metric system for values.
Tolerance: Characterizes the extent of permitted variability of overall device value among samples of a given part number, resulting from variations in manufacturing.
Voltage - Rated: Typically this represents the maximum voltage rating to which a device will meet its given specifications. Exceeding this voltage rating may damage the device and other system components.
Dielectric Material: A material that is an efficient supporter of electrostatic fields. It can either be an insulator or a poor electrical conductor.
Number of Capacitors: The quantity of distinct capacitor elements contained within the array.
Circuit Type: Describes any internal connections among the individual capacitive elements within an array.
Temperature Coefficient: Identifies the temperature range and the variance in capacitance over that range. For more information see Understanding Ceramic Capacitor Temp-Coefficients.
Ratings: Minimum performance standards of the device, which are typically set by a third party.
Mounting Type: Identifies how the device is attached.
Package / Case: Indicates the type of protective case used on an electronic component to allow easy handling, installation, and protection. This selection was determined to be the closest industry standard applicable to the supplier’s device packaging. Typically it is best to check the actual dimensions from the datasheet rather than depend on this terminology when designing your circuit.
Supplier Device Package: This is what the manufacturer calls the package of this device. They are manufacturer specific. It is typically best to use the actual dimensions from the datasheets rather than to go by this terminology when designing your circuit.
Size / Dimension: The physical dimensions of the main body of the device. Typically listed as length X width.
Height - Seated (Max): Indicates how far the device will extend above the surface to which it has been attached.
