Press Release Summary:
With dielectric constant double that of previous industry maximum for Grain Boundary Barrier Layer (GBBL) formulations, Ultra Maxi Series features X7R characteristics and is offered in voltage ratings of 6.3, 16, and 25 Vdc. Series enables circuit miniaturization in broadband bypass and optical networking applications where performance and small footprint are primary considerations. Single-layer ceramic capacitors are lead (Pb)-free and RoHS-compliant.

New Single-Layer Ceramic Capacitors Exhibit Record High Dielectric Constant with X7R Characteristics
SLC capacitors set new dielectric constant high at 60,000; enable circuit miniaturization...
MYRTLE BEACH S.C. (July 6, 2006) - AVX Corporation, a leading manufacturer of advanced passive components, has expanded the AVX family of proprietary high k, intergranular barrier layer dielectric systems. Similar to AVX's Maxi and Maxi+ product offerings, the new single-layer ceramic capacitor series, designated Ultra Maxi, features X7R characteristics and a dielectric constant of 60,000 - double the previous industry high for Grain Boundary Barrier Layer (GBBL) formulations.
Available in voltage ratings of 6.3, 16 and 25 VDC, the new Ultra Maxi Series sets a new standard for circuit miniaturization.
"On average, the required board mounting area will be reduced by approximately two-thirds when compared to an equivalent capacitance value in our Maxi+ series," said Larry Eisenberger, AVX Product Marketing Manager. "The Ultra Maxi Series offers an ideal solution for broadband bypass, and optical networking applications where high performance and the smallest footprint are the primary considerations."
These Ultra Maxi SLC's are is also RoHS-compliant and lead-free, as are all SLC products from AVX.
Lead time for production parts is 4 to 6 weeks, and samples and custom configurations are available on request.
