GREENVILLE, S.C.– AVX Corporation, a leading manufacturer of passive components and interconnect solutions, has recently made its high-reliability, military-qualified ceramic and tantalum capacitors available for fast prototype delivery through Digi-Key, a global electronics components distributor recognized as the industry-leader in selection, availability and delivery.

Ideal for a variety of military and aerospace applications, newly available high-reliability tantalum capacitor series include AVX’s Military Tantalum CWR09/11/19/29 and CWR15 Series, the world’s smallest military-approved tantalum chip capacitors, as well as its hermetically sealed TWC (MIL-PRF-39006) Series of wet electrolytic tantalum capacitors. Hi-Rel Mil-Spec ceramic solutions now available through DigiKey range from CDR (MIL-PRF-55681) and SMPS (MIL-PRF-49470) series to those with several DSCC/DLA and space-level MIL-PRF-123 specifications, providing a comprehensive offering of both leaded and surface mount microwave and stacked MLC capacitors.

“AVX is the global leader of Hi-Rel ceramic and tantalum capacitors,” said Mark Obuszewski, ceramic product manager at AVX. “Making these product lines available through Digi-Key enables us to provide fast and efficient prototype delivery of our trusted mil-aero capacitor series to design engineers worldwide.”

AVX’s high-reliability ceramic capacitors available through Digi-Key feature capacitance levels spanning 0.1pF to 1300F, rated voltages spanning 50-1000V, tolerances ranging from 0.1pF to 5%, and operating temperatures ranging from -55C to 150C. The military-qualified capacitors are available in four failure rates: M (1%), P (0.1%), R (0.01%), and S (0.001%), and several case sizes and packaging options are also available.

AVX’s high-reliability tantalum capacitors now available through Digi-Key feature capacitance levels spanning 0.1F to 1500F, rated voltages spanning 4-125 V, ESRs spanning 18mOhms to 22Ohms, and 10%, 20%, and 5% tolerances. Available in three failure rates for the CWR series: B (0.1%), C (0.01%), and D (0.001%), AVX’s military-qualified tantalum capacitors are also available in several case sizes.

Pricing information is available at, and most parts are available for immediate shipment.
