Johanson Silver E-Series Capacitors are High RF power and low loss ceramic multilayer RF capacitors (High Frequency MLCC’s). This ultra-High-Q E-Series of products use nearly pure silver electrodes, which is a superior high frequency conductor compared to palladium. Accordingly, the performance of these products sets a new standard in the industry for low ESR capacitors.
Utilizing a modern dielectric system, these NPO capacitors exhibit the lowest losses, excellent high voltage performance and excellent temperature stability.
