A guide to low voltage ceramic disc capacitors

Ceramic disc capacitors have been around for many decades; they are the precursors to modern day MLCCs, and low cost ceramic disc capacitors still find applications in low cost designs where space is not at a premium.

Vishay is the only recognised manufacturer currently producing a range of low voltage ceramic disc capacitors (high voltage discs are another matter).

The two series below represent the entire range.
