AVX Develops Low-Profile MLCC for Thin-Package Requirements

Compact package ideal for thin, unpackaged ICs...

MYRTLE BEACH S.C. (September 5, 2006) - AVX Corporation, a leading manufacturer of advanced passive components, has expanded the X5R dielectric product offering to include a very low-profile multi-layer ceramic capacitor (MLCC). Designated the LT Series, the capacitor is ideal for decoupling and filtering applications where height clearance is limited, such as thin, unpackaged ICs, smartcards, flash memory cards, memory modules and RFID packages.

"AVX's continued investment in the research and development of thin dielectric layer technology has resulted in a low-profile MLCC that responds to many of our customers most pressing needs," said Sonja Brown, Product Manager. "The LT series meets all of the demands of space-constrained and thin applications such as camera and LCD modules."

The LT Series is offered in 0402, 0603, 0805, and 1206 case sizes and is available in compact or low-profile package designs. AVX's X5R dielectric is a Class II dielectric with a temperature variation of capacitance within ±15% from -55ºC to +85ºC. The LT Series is available in operation voltages of 4, 6.3, 10 or 16 VDC with a capacitance tolerance of ±10% or ±20%.

Pricing typically starts at $0.036 in quantities of 50,000 with a lead time of 8-10 weeks
