Pulse Energy Capacitors for Exploding Foil Initiator (EFI) Detonators
If you require high reliability pulse energy capacitors for electronic detonator and ignition systems (including missiles, ordinance, and oil well completion), contact Presidio. Our capacitors are available in a variety of voltages, sizes, and capacitance ratings. Go to our New Pulse Energy Capacitors web page for a summary of product highlights, or call us at (858) 578-9390 Ext. 283.

Presidio Components is proud to announce the qualification to failure rate Level "S" for
CDR11 and CDR12
(NPO 0505 Size) and CDR13 and CDR14 (NPO 1010 Size) on MIL-PRF-55681. These capacitors have not only earned the industry's highest reliability rating but also have extremely high Q, exceptionally low ESR, and very cool performance with RF power. See our new High Q NPO Catalog for more information about these products.

Contact Presidio for more information about our Multilayer Ceramic Chip Capacitors for Space. Tested per NASA S-311-P-829 (Rev. K), these extended range chip capacitors are used for space, missile and other high reliability applications. Please call for more information about these parts.

Presidio's catalog featuring our High Reliability Extended Range Chip Capacitors for Space has been updated to feature our new 0201 and 0402 caps. The small size and high reliability of these capacitors makes them ideal for space flight applications. Check out our catalog for our other breakthrough caps. All of these can be supplied as S311 or SR/HR type screening.
