AVX has launched the FRC series of medium-power DC-link film capacitors, which feature a range of capacitance and voltage values in addition to self-healing properties.
AVX has introduced the AT series of high-temperature multi-layer ceramic capacitors (MLCCs) rated at 250°C. The series is designed to accommodate military and commercial demands for higher-temperature electronics.
AVX has extended the capacitance range and voltage ratings for its X7R multi-layer ceramic capacitors (MLCCs). Available in sizes spanning 01005 to 2225, the X7R MLCCs exhibit high K and low ESR and are now available with capacitance values spanning 100pF to 47µF and standard voltage ratings spanning 4V to 500V. High-voltage X7R MLCCs with ratings up to 5,000V are also available, as are automotive and alternate termination options.
AVX has added high-temperature X8R and X8L dielectric components to its high-reliability APS series multilayer ceramic capacitors (MLCCs) for commercial off-the-shelf applications.
The FM series medium-power film capacitors from AVX are suitable for power supply, DC and pulse applications. The capacitors are said to exhibit high reliability, high capacitance stability, low losses, self-healing properties and long lifetime.
