These ceramic capacitors use high dielectric constant (K>1000) ferroelectric materials based on barium titanate.
Key Features include:
Non-linear temperature characteristics
Reliable voltage and frequency performance
Predictable change of capacitance with time
The capacitors available in this class have temperature characteristic codes of Z5P. Other codes are available having dielectric constants usually, but not necessarily, greater than 4000. The capacitors available in this class have tempeatur characteristic codes of T3M, Y5R, Y5U, Y5V, Z5P and Z5U.
