API Technologies Introduces High Reliability MIL Grade Ceramic SMPS Capacitors for High Frequency Switching Power Supplies and Energy Storage

ORLANDO, FL  — August 23, 2012 — API Technologies Corp. (NASDAQ:ATNY) (“API” or the “Company”), a trusted provider of RF/microwave, microelectronics, and security solutions for critical and high-reliability applications, announced today the addition of high reliability MIL grade SMPS ceramic capacitors to its Spectrum Control product line. 

These high-speed switch mode power supply (SMPS) capacitors feature extremely low equivalent series resistance (ESR) and equivalent series inductance (ESL), as well as predictable performance characteristics with changes in temperature, voltage and frequency. They are ideal for high reliability and high frequency applications. A commercial industrial grade alternative in a non-military package configuration is also available.

“Our hi rel ceramic SMPS capacitors have much less equivalent series resistance than comparable electrolytic and tantalum capacitors,” said Larry Howanitz, Vice President, EIS & Sensors divisions of API Technologies. “This allows design engineers to accomplish the same results, but with less capacitance and in a smaller and lighter package.”

Ceramic SMPS capacitors are designed for continuous operation at full-rated voltage across their entire temperature range. They are maintenance free and non-toxic. Applications include higher frequency switching power supplies such as resonant DC-DC power supplies and pulse modulated DC-DC converters, or for applications requiring bulk capacitance or energy storage. 

API Technologies’ Electromagnetic Integrated Solutions (EIS) line of products offers filters and interconnects, advanced ceramics, specialty connectors & harnessing, power filters, and film modules.
