Knowles Capacitors makes reliable components for demanding medical applications including implantable pacemakers, defibrillators and neurostimulation devices, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machines and X-ray equipment.
Implantable Medical Devices - Our high reliability multilayer capacitors, discoidal capacitors, arrays, EMI filters and multi-way feed-through filters are key building blocks in many implantable devices. New developments include thin film devices for integration and size reduction. Backed by extensive technical expertise and high-volume test capabilities, you can rely on our parts in your critical applications.
MRI Machines and Coils - Getting the best out of an MRI system means being able to optimize, or tune, the resonance performance of the coil. With decades of experience, we have the right precision variable capacitors for the need – not just stable, high voltage and high Q devices, but products made from special alloys guaranteeing non-magnetic behavior. We also offer a wide range of non-magnetic, high-Q and HV capacitors, inductors, diodes and hardware – all the things you need to make a resonant coil.
X-ray Equipment – Our Hi-rel, HV and leaded MLCs are used in the specialized power supplies vital to make X-ray generators.
