AVX Develops High Q, Low ESR, 500 & 250VDC Multilayer Organic RF Capacitors
Press release date: Oct 04, 2012
GREENVILLE, S.C. – AVX Corporation, a leading manufacturer of advanced passive components and interconnect solutions, has developed a 500 and 250VDC, 0603 case size surface mount capacitor capable of supporting frequencies ranging from 1 MHz to well above 5 GHz. Designated the MLO3 Series, the advanced organic RF capacitors maintain high Q and high self resonance while providing low ESR values at high frequencies. Based on AVX’s patented multilayer low-loss organic (MLO™) technology, the polymer-based organic capacitors use high-conductivity copper interconnects in a multilayer fashion.
The ability to fabricate these components on large area substrates with sophisticated laser-direct imaging yields low profile, low ESR, and high-performance RF capacitors with improved cost benefits and tolerance control. Additionally, AVX’s MLO™ Capacitors are expansion matched to printed circuit boards for improved reliability.
“AVX’s new line of organic capacitors represents a revolutionary departure from traditional passive SMT components,” said Larry Eisenberger, product manager at AVX. “The multilayer low-loss organic RF capacitor’s state-of-the-art design ultimately increases performance characteristics while decreasing costs.”
The RoHS-compliant RF capacitors are rated for 50-500VDC, and feature capacitance values ranging from 0.1 pF to 2.5 pF and capacitance tolerance to +/- 0.02 pF. Available in 0603 case size with a 100% tin finish, the MLO3 Series features stable NPO characteristics and an operating temperature range of -55°C to +125°C.
AVX’s MLO3 Series surface mount capacitors are ideal for usage in RF power and low noise amplifiers, filter networks, and MRI systems.
