Switch Mode Power Supply Ceramic Capacitors

API's Switch Mode Power Supply Ceramic Capacitors have lower Equivalent Series Resistance (Low ESR), lower Equivalent Series Inductance (Low ESL), lower ripple voltage, and less self healing when compared to other captive elements. These standard stacked Multi-Layer Ceramic Capacitors (MLCC) are ideal for high energy density products.

 

DC Link Film Capacitors

DC Link Film Capacitors are the ideal replacement for electrolytic capacitors. DC link capacitors feature a compact, cost effective design with high capacitance density and ripple current capabilities.

 

Metallized Polyester Film Capacitors

API's Metallized Polyester Film Capacitors are designed for general purpose applications such as bypassing, coupling or decoupling. These standard Metallized Polyester Film Capacitors can be used in both low and high impedance circuits, and are usually the smallest and most economical of the metallized capacitors.

 

Metallized Polypropylene Film Capacitors

API's Metallized Polypropylene Film Capacitors for sound and audio (F series), and DC applications (G Series).

 

Metallized Polyphenylene Sulfide Film Capacitors

API's Metallized Polyphenylene Sulfide Film Capacitors are ideal for applications requiring the high stability and low retrace of polyphenylene sulfide, and can be integrated into applications where Polycarbonate film capacitors are needed.

 

Polypropylene & Foil Film Capacitors

API's Polypropylene & Foil Film Capacitors are designed primarily for DC applications where RF and audio components are small in comparison to the DC rating. However, they have been used successfully in AC power applications as well. 

 

Polyester & Foil Film Capacitors

API's Polyester & Foil Film Capacitors feature high insulation resistance, low frequency pulse discharge, and can handle high peak currents that are imperative for audio and power supply applications.
