High Q Chip Capacitors

The SemiGen Series 8000 capacitors offer a working voltage of >50V and capacitance ranges from 2.0-600pF, with the Series 8100 capacitors offering a working voltage of >100V and 0.1-399pF capacitance range. They are made with prime starting material and consist of an Oxide/Nitride layer that provides low dielectric loss and high standoff voltage. These products are supplied in chip form only.. 


  • Very High Q.
  • Low Temperature Coefficients.
  • Low Dissipation Factor.
  • Long-Term Stability.
  • Gold Contacts Front & Back.
  • Die as Thin as 3mm for Limiting Inductance.

They are designed for use in applications that require DC protection, RF bypassing or fixed tuning of amplifiers, oscillators, switches, filters and multipliers .

High Voltage Metal Alloy Resistors

The TM series of semi-precision resistors from Tepro are designed for High Temperature, High Voltage applications. Their low cost construction is completely inorganic, with no outgassing. They are non-insulated and are designed for operation in Air, Oil, Vacuum and Inert Atmospheres.  

  • High Voltage: to 15KV.
  • High Temperature: to +350?C.
  • Tolerance: ?2%, ?5%, ?10%, ?20%.
  • Special Testing, Data Packages Available.
  • High Temperature Silicone Coating Available.
Metal alloy resistors will replace Metal Oxide resistors where the Temperature Coefficients requirements are not as demanding, at a considerable saving.

Applications Include

  • High Voltage Power Supplies.
  • High Voltage Probes.
  • Lasers.
  • Radar.
  • Mercury Vapour Lamps.
  • Metal Halide Lamps.
  • Test Equipment.
  • Microwaves.
  • Immersion in Oil.
  • Vacuum or Inert Atmosphere.
