AVX High Power Surface Mount Capacitors Deliver High Frequency Performance
MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (July 27, 2004) - Designed for medical and industrial electronics, AVX Corporation introduces the Hi-Q® Series MLC surface mount power capacitors with proven results in high frequency applications. As a part of AVX's Hi-Q family of RF capacitors, these devices are designed to handle high power and high voltage levels for RF applications. The HQ Series MLC features an ultra-low equivalent series resistance (ESR) and dissipation factor at high frequencies.
The capacitors are designed for 600V to 4,000V applications and feature a dielectric strength of 120% of rated WVDC. The device can handle the high power and high voltage levels of RF power amplifiers, inductive heating, high magnetic field environments (MRI coils), and medical & industrial electronics.
"AVX's HQ Series devices provide medical and industrial electronics experts with the high power and high voltage characteristics necessary for optimal performance," explained Larry Eisenberger, AVX product manager.
The HQ Series capacitors are available in case sizes HQCC and HQCE and feature capacitance values from 6,800pF down to 10pF with tolerances to ±20%. The HQ Series capacitors feature voltage ratings from 600VDC to 4,000VDC with a temperature coefficient of ±30ppm/ºC over the operating temperature range of -55ºC to +125ºC. Pricing starts at $0.75 each in quantities of 1,000. Lead times are from stock to 12 weeks.
