Built using decades of expertise in multi-layer ceramic capacitor manufacturing, these planar capacitors offer many advantages over stand-alone chip, discoidal or tubular capacitors. This includes low profile and compact designs, and quick assembly time.
With a combination of versatility and function, planar ceramic capacitors are quickly becoming the new standard in filtered connectors used in EMI suppression applications.
API's ceramic capacitors are designed and produced in our State College, PA (USA) facility.
