At the inaugural Performance Networks Awards, organised by the Association for Public Service Excellence (APSE), WVDC
and Sones were runners-up in the Parks, Open Spaces & Horticultural Services category.
The device has a temperature coefficient of capacitance of [+ or -]15 percent over a temperature range of -55[degrees] to +125[degrees]C and is rated at 10 WVDC
. The product utilizes the company's patented buried electrode capacitor in a miniature package with a 0402 footprint.
The capacitors are designed for 600V to 4,000V applications and feature a dielectric strength of 120 percent of rated WVDC
. They can handle the high power and high voltage levels of RF power amplifiers, inductive heating, high magnetic field environments (MRI coils) and medical and industrial electronics.
