AVX has introduced the TWD DCUltraMax series of high-CV wet tantalum capacitors for use in a variety of harsh environment applications including pulse applications, energy harvesting, energy storage, military electronics and avionics.
AVX has released a series of fused high-CV tantalum SMD chip capacitors with undertab terminations. The F98-AS1 series capacitors are suitable for use in a variety of applications in which safety and size are a primary concern, including automotive, commercial, industrial and medical applications, and the input/output lines of small power supply circuits, portable gaming devices and smartphones.
AVX has introduced the FLA series medium-power film capacitors designed for AC filtering in power converters, UPS systems, solar and wind inverters, and motor drives. The capacitors are comprised of metallised polypropylene dielectric imbued with a soft polyurethane (PU) resin and encased in a cylindrical aluminium can with fast-on or screw terminals.
AVX has released a new version of its SpiCalci simulation software, an engineering tool that calculates performance characteristics and parameters of switch-mode power supply (SMPS) capacitors. SpiCalci 9.0 helps design engineers to identify and select the best SMPS capacitor solutions for applications in the military, aerospace, space, automotive, alternative energy, motor drive, oil and gas, power inversion and conversion and supply industries.
AVX has extended its F38 series with the addition of what it describes as the smallest, highest CV polymer tantalum capacitors available. The new F38 series capacitors are suitable for use in the power supply circuits of a variety of small electronics applications, such as the battery or power lines of smartphones, tablet PCs, handheld gaming systems, wireless modules and hearing aids.
