Surface Mount Filter Arrays

API’s SA Series EMI filter arrays incorporate four three terminal chips in one compact footprint. These surface mount filter arrays are structured to minimise the residual inductance ensuring large insertion loss in the wide band.

Features:

  • The filter’s structure minimises residual inductance with a high self resonant frequency, ensuring large insertion loss in a wide band
  • The common ground electrode built into the chip ensures complete grounding of all lines at the ground on both ends. The filter is designed to control cross talk
  • An optimum constant can be selected from the capacity range of 22-22,000 pF to best suit the frequency
  • Solder plated nickel barrier terminations offer good solderability and resistance to soldering heat
  • Available lead free/RoHs Compliant
  • Non-polar and surface mountable

Applications:

  • Computer peripheral equipment
  • Telecommunications equipment
  • Power amplifiers
  • Power supplies
  • Temperature and motor controls

Mini Surface Mount Filters

Mini surface mount EMI filters feature high temperature construction and have current ratings up to 10 Amps. The filter chips will hardly allow residual inductance and the self-resonant frequency extends to the microwave band.

Features:

  • Miniature footprint help in dense circuit configuration
  • Rated at 10 Amps
  • Packaged in tape and reel or bulk form
  • Operating temperature ranges of -25°C to +85°C and -55°C to +125°C
  • Available lead free/RoHs Compliant

Applications:

  • DC power supply lines
  • Computer peripheral equipment
  • Digital AV equipment
  • Telecommunications equipment
  • Medical equipment

Power Surface Mount Filters

Power surface mount EMI filters feature high temperature construction and have current ratings up to 20 Amps. This filter series is non-polar and surface mountable with excellent performance characteristics and come in either a feed-through or Pi circuit configuration.

Features:

  • Provides time and costs saving compared to through-hole filters
  • Rated at 20 Amps
  • Packaged in tape and reel or bulk form
  • Operating temperature ranges of -55°C to +125°C
  • Available lead free/RoHs Compliant

Applications:

  • Digital AV equipment
  • Telecommunications equipment
  • Computer and peripheral equipment
  • Power amplifiers
  • Power supplies
  • High current buss lines

Mini Surface Mount and PCB Power Filters

MSP mini surface mount PCB power filters offer compact EMI packaging with plus and minus lines as well as high insertion loss in a wide frequency band by combining feed through capacitors, multilayer ceramic capacitors and ferrite bead inductors with high self-resonance frequency. Mini surface mount PCB power filters are designed for 10 A DC power lines. Our MSP-010-050 has a broad temperature rang of -55°C to 125°C.

Applications:

  • Electronic measuring instruments
  • Industrial equipment
  • Automotive electronics
  • Switching power supplies
  • DC-DC converters
