Looking for a low TCC capacitance


I am currently designing a reference module which needs to contain capacitances with low temperature coefficients (TCCs) and low drift
→ This is required since the uncertainty needs to be as low as possible

My question: Which capacitor type should I look for? The tolerance of the nominal value is not that important, since the nominal value will be determined before usage.
Needed nominal values: 10nF, 100nF, 1uF, 10uF, 100uF

Any help is appreciated. Product suggestions are appreciated as well!

Thanks in advance.


Thank you for your question and welcome to our community!

Before we get started I would like to share a link to a couple of previous posts with you. After you have reviewed them if you still have questions we can go from there.

I hope this helps!

Hello l.wickersheim,

For values 10nF to 1uF ceramic capacitors with temp coeff NP0 would be a good option for low drift over wide temperature −55 to +125 °C.

Regarding the higher capacitance ratings you could be looking at the X7R temperature coeff. for ceramics. Or you may be interested in Film Capacitors with dielectric material PEN capacitors (polyethylene naphthalate, MKN).

Best regards,
