AVX First to Market: SR21 X7R Capacitor with 1.0µF at 50V and 100V SA10 Axial X5R Capacitor with 3.3µf at 10V
AVX expands leaded MLC capacitor product offering...
MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (May 23, 2007) - AVX Corporation, a leading manufacturer of advanced passive components, has developed new radial and axial leaded multilayer ceramic capacitors that offer high capacitance levels of up to 1.0µF at 50V and 100V in SR21 radial and 3.3µF at 10V in an SA10 axial configuration.
The new SkyCap® series radial leaded ceramic capacitors are an extension of the existing SR21 family, which provide increased efficiency by allowing very high capacitances at around half the previously available package volume. The SkyCap series is the industry leading conformally coated radial leaded MLC. They have been RoHS compliant since January 2005.
The SpinGuard® series axial leaded capacitor utilizes the X5R dielectric for the first time and offers a high capacitance of 3.3µF at 10V. It is also RoHS compliant and is an ideal replacement for tantalum axial leaded devices.
"AVX is the first company to offer this size of radial leaded MLC capacitor in this capacitance value with 100V rating," said Tim Piver, Product Specialist. "AVX is also first to market axial leaded MLC with X5R dielectric. We are continuing to make developments and support customers who need improved performance in leaded devices, while many competitors have de-emphasized the through-hole devices to concentrate on SMD devices."
Both capacitors are ideal for use in commercial and industrial power supplies as well as other applications requiring higher capacitance values..
Typical pricing for the SA10ZD335KAR is $0.21 for 7,500 pieces with a lead time of six weeks. Typical pricing for the SR211C105KAR is $.385 for 1,000 pieces with a lead time of 12 weeks.
