KEMET's high frequency CBR series surface mount multilayer ceramic capacitors (MLCCs) in C0G dielectic feature a robust and exceptionally stable base metal electrode dielectric system that provides excellent low loss performance (High Q). These devices offer extremely low ESR and high self-resonance characteristics and are well suited for resonant circuit applications or those where Q and stability of capacitance characteristics are required. Supported field applications include wireless and cellular base stations, wireless LAN, subscriber-based wireless services, wireless broadcast equipment, satellite communications, RF power amplifier (PA) modules, filters, voltage-controlled oscillators (VCOs), PAs, matching networks, RF modules, and medical electronics.

Modelithics high frequency simulation models are available for the KEMET CBR RF Series of broadband capacitors including five different case size families. The models are compatible with five major EDA software tools and KEMET is currently sponsoring free 30-day trials of the models through the Modelithics Vendor Partner (MVP) program.
