Leading thin film fuse technology now available to DSCC-DWG 04053...

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (July 13, 2009) - AVX Corporation, a leading manufacturer of advanced passive components and interconnect solutions, has received Defense Supply Center Columbus (DSCC) approval for its TBW Series fused tantalum chip. Providing low equivalent series resistance (ESR), the TBW tantalum fuse is ideal for safe low impedance power supply filtering. The TBW Series features a fast-acting and failsafe internal fuse element, making it well suited to mission-critical applications where failsafe operation is needed, such as avionic power supplies and power distribution, banked applications for bulk decoupling and backplane.

"The TBW Series offers the lowest ESR value available for a fused tantalum in a case size that is less than half that of the competition," said Dan Lane, Marketing Manager, Tantalum Products at AVX.

The technology also enables the capacitor to be supplied with full Weibull grade reliability including level B and C.

Samples are available in three popular military and aerospace power supply filter ratings:
o 47µF / 15v TBWD476K015CBSB0000
o 15µF / 35v TBWD156K035CBSB0000
o 4.7µF / 50v TBWD475K050CBSB0000

Other ratings are available with up to a 10 week lead time on request. Parts are available with tin-lead termination as standard. Pricing is set at competitive market levels.

Full application and product support is available from AVX Tantalum Division,
Biddeford ME.
