AVX Output Capacitors Designed for Power Distribution
HiCV MLCC output capacitor ideal for output filter, decoupling applications...
Myrtle Beach, S.C. (April 14, 2005) - To meet the demands of a changing marketplace, AVX Corporation has produced an extensive range of medium-to-low voltage capacitors that address component count and board space-saving concerns. AVX's high capacitance ceramic MLCCs allow the use of smaller components with much larger capacitance values for power applications.
"Designers are driven by customer requirements to produce smaller equipment with improved functionality," said Tim Hollander, AVX marketing manager. "AVX has developed the HiCV MLCC output capacitor family to support the design trend of smaller capacitors with higher capacitance values. The use of advanced manufacturing technologies to produce thinner dielectric layers, together with enhancements to material performance will continue to drive this development."
The HiCV MLCC output capacitors feature a base metal electrode system and an extensive voltage range of 4V to 35V. Low ESR values and high reliability, with low inductance, make the capacitor ideal for use as an output filter. HiCV MLCC output capacitors can also be widely used in decoupling applications.
Chip sizes range from 0.60mm (±0.03) by 0.30mm (±0.03) with a thickness of 0.30mm (±0.03) to the largest chip size of 4.5mm (±0.03) by 3.2mm (±0.02) and a thickness of 2.79mm (±0.03).
The capacitor series has a maximum operating temperature of +85°C .
Pricing varies pending on case sizes as well as quantity.
