MultiCapTM - Polypropylene & Aluminum Foil Multiple-Section Capacitor

The PPFX series of the MultiCapTM reduces typical capacitor loss factors with a patented design that winds capacitors coaxially one upon the other, into a single, self-bypassed unit. Since each section is parallel, the inductance of the overall capacitor is reduced by the number of sections used - typically 10. Inductance characteristics never exceed those of a piece of lead wire the same length as the capacitor's body. Measured ESR values are 5 to 10 times lower than conventional designs (see Figure 1). Dielectric absorption is very low, making the PPFX desirable in high-speed circuits. In its overall reduction of parasitics, this series resembles the PPFX-S in measured performance, tolerates higher temperatures (105 degrees C) than the RTX. It is ideal for use in all applications wherever low ESR, ESL, and low DF are important, and wherever the finest film and foil capacitors are required.
