AbstractIn this SBIR program, TRS Technologies has developed several new dielectrics for high temperature applications including signal conditioning, filtering and energy storage, and high-power RF. Feasibility was demonstrated by constructing prototype multilayer ceramic capacitors (MLCCs) with capacitance values in the 80 to 100nF range @ 450oC and voltage handling capability of at least 250V. In particular, high dielectric constant (5,000 to 30,000), moderate loss (2-6%) capacitors were demonstrated with voltage handling capabilities of over 250V; and low dielectric constant (30-100), low loss (<<1%) capacitors were demonstrated with voltage handling capabilities of over 1000V that were capable of working from <30K to over 500oC while maintaining ca. ±14% of the room temperature capacitance.
