Synopsis of Presentation

X2YŽ Technology is an embedded Circuit Layered Architecture that changes a standard ceramic capacitor into a balanced and symmetrical circuit that results in internal noise cancellation. This presentation provides an overview of the component's internal structure, various circuit applications and broadband performance characteristics. The goal of this presentation is to provide a foundational understanding of the technology for industry. Specific information on applications can be found at http://

1. Component Overview

2. High Frequency Component Testing/Data

3. SPICE Model

4. Filter Applications

5. Decoupling Applications

6. X2Y in MOV and Ferrite Dielectric
