LICAŽ Series Low Inductance Decoupling Capacitor Arrays from AVX are Ideal for Hi-Rel Mil/Aero Applications
Exhibiting less than 30pH ESL & tested to MIL-PRF-123, AVX’s high-reliability LICA Series capacitors provide the lowest inductance decoupling solutions in the mil/aero marketplace
GREENVILLE, S.C. -- AVX Corporation, a leading manufacturer of advanced passive components and interconnect solutions, has expanded the applications for its LICAŽ Series low inductance decoupling capacitor arrays. Widely utilized in commercial and industrial five nines (99.999%) uptime applications, such as mainframe class CPUs and ultimate performance multichip modules and communications systems, LICA Series low inductance decoupling capacitor arrays tested to MIL-PRF-123 also provide high-reliability and extremely low inductance advanced decoupling solutions for a variety of military and aerospace applications, including high-pin-count FPGAs, ASICs, CPUs, and other high power, high performance ICs with low operating voltages.
Exhibiting less than 30pH ESL, which is currently the lowest ESL rating in the mil/aero market, AVX's LICA Series includes several low inductance design features. Utilizing up to four separate capacitor sections in a single ceramic case, LICA Series arrays feature low resistance platinum electrodes in a low aspect ratio pattern, double electrode pickup, and perpendicular current paths. The series is also the only product in the mil/aero market to feature C4 solder ball terminations, which enable minimal interconnect inductance and are the perfect complement to flip-chip packaging technology.
"LICA Series low inductance capacitor arrays have several design features and performance benefits that are unique to the mil/aero market. In addition to their being the only mil-qualified capacitors to utilize low-inductance C4 solder ball terminations, LICA arrays exhibit the lowest ESL of any comparable product in the market, earning them a reputation as the most advanced, highest-reliability decoupling solution currently available in the mil/aero market, according to early adopters of the technology who are currently utilizing the series in space," said Mark Obuszewski, business manager at AVX.
LICA Series components qualified to MIL-PRF-123 are rated for 25V and -55°C to 125°C, reach peak capacitance at 55°C, and measure 1.85mm x 1.6mm x one of four height options: 0.65mm, 0.875mm, 1.10mm, and 1.60mm.
