AVX’s new UQ Series MLCCs exhibit ultra-low ESR, high Q, and high self-resonance

GREENVILLE, S.C.– AVX Corporation, a leading manufacturer of advanced passive components and interconnect solutions, has introduced a new series of microwave MLCCs with near-pure silver (Ag) electrodes, which both enhance performance and mitigate cost. Exhibiting higher conductivity than competing non-precious metal RF capacitors, AVX’s new UQ Series MLCCs feature ultra-low ESR, high Q, high self-resonance, and a capacitance range spanning 0.1pF to 1000pF. Ideal applications for the UQ Series include RF power amplifiers, low noise amplifiers, filter networks, and MRI systems.

“By utilizing near-pure silver electrodes on the new UQ Series capacitors, AVX was able to provide higher conductivity than competitive non-precious metal technologies while remaining highly competitive in terms of cost, ” said Larry Eisenberger, product manager at AVX.

Lead-free and RoHS compliant, AVX’s high-performance UQ Series MLC RF capacitors are available in seven voltages, ranging from 50-500V, and in eight capacitance tolerances, ranging from 0.1pf to 20%. Competitively priced with other non-precious metal RF capacitors, the series is also available in six case sizes: 0605, 1210, 0709, 0402, 0603, and 0805, and with three termination styles: nickel barrier Sn/Pb (60/40), 100% tin, and non-magnetic barrier/tin.

AVX’s UQ Series is rated for use in temperatures ranging from -55C to +125C. The series also either meets or exceeds the requirements of EIA-198, MIL-PRF-55681, and MIL-PRF-123.
