AVX has announced that its TCH series hermetically sealed tantalum polymer chip capacitors for aerospace, defence and other high-reliability applications are now rated for extended lifespans of up to 10,000 hours.
AVX has introduced a low-profile, high-CV tantalum capacitor: the 47µF 8V 1206-06 D-case TACmicrochip. The capacitor is suitable for use in audio and power amplifier modules and in handheld electronics.
AVX has introduced a tiny, low-profile tantalum capacitor: the sub-millimeter 0201 TACmicrochip. The capacitor is suitable for use in miniature, wearable medical devices, audio and power amplifier modules and handheld electronics.
AVX has introduced an RoHS-compliant series of high-voltage, DIP-leaded stacked SMPS capacitors. Rated for 1,000–5,000V and capacitance values spanning 100pF to 15µF, the new RV series capacitors is suitable for high-voltage applications including medical spectrometry and imaging equipment, semiconductor test equipment, power conversion and conditioning, motors and motor drives, high-voltage SMPSs and commercial and industrial detection, scanning and quality analysis equipment.
AVX releases range of low-leakage automotive varistors for applications such as brake control download
AVX has introduced a series of high-temperature, low-leakage automotive varistors. Qualified to AEC-Q200, the CANATL series automotive-controlled area network varistors exhibit low leakage (=1µA at 32VDC, 25°C) and are tested, qualified and specified at 150°C, making them suitable for high-temperature under-hood automotive applications such as transmission control units (TCUs), brake control modules (BCMs), data lines, bus interface units and other capacitance sensitive applications.
