AVX Extends Fail-Safe OxiCap® NOS Series Voltage Ratings to Satisfy Automotive Applications & Adds Standard ESR Ratings for Cost-Conscious Applications

FOUNTAIN INN, S.C. (February 22, 2016) – AVX Corporation, a leading manufacturer of passive components and interconnect solutions, has extended the voltage ratings for its award-winning OxiCap® NOS Low ESR Series niobium oxide (NbO) capacitors to 8V at 85°C and 7V at 105°C to satisfy automotive applications requiring fail-safe SMD electrolytic capacitors, and has also added standard ESR ratings to satisfy more cost-conscious applications. Delivering exceptional reliability for SMD capacitors — 0.2% per 1,000 hours at rated voltage and 85°C, with just 20% recommended derating under load — the series is ideal for in-cabin automotive applications, such as: steering angle sensors, voltage regulators, DC-DC converters, electrochromic mirror systems, and automotive infotainment systems. Based on niobium oxide technology, which can withstand

AVX Introduces a New Series of Conductive Polymer Chip Capacitors for Demanding Automotive Applications

FOUNTAIN INN, S.C. (February 9, 2016) – AVX Corporation, a leading manufacturer of passive components and interconnect solutions, has introduced the robust new TCQ Series automotive conductive polymer chip capacitors. Qualified to the Automotive Electronics Council’s AEC-Q200 specification for passive components, the TCQ Series meets the AEC’s challenging 125°C lifetime stability test and humidity bias testing at 85°C and 85% relative humidity for up to 1,000 hours. “The AEC-Q200 lifetime stability and humidity bias tests are notoriously difficult for polymer capacitors to pass due to inherent material limitations. As such, we based our new TCQ Series automotive conductive polymer chip capacitors on our proven, high reliability TCR Series professional conductive polymer chip capacitors, making several critical improvements to the material,

AVX Reduces the ESR of its F38 Series Miniature Polymer Tantalum Capacitors

AVX Reduces the ESR of its F38 Series Miniature Polymer Tantalum Capacitors

FOUNTAIN INN, S.C. (February 4, 2016) – AVX Corporation, a leading manufacturer of passive components and interconnect solutions, has earned a third superlative for its F38 Series miniature, undertab, conductive polymer tantalum capacitors by significantly reducing the ESR of several ratings. The F38 Series, which already offered the smallest and highest CV polymer tantalum capacitors in the industry — 0603 capacitors with an ultralow profile of 0.9mm, and 6.3V/47μF ratings, now offers the lowest ESR small case size polymer capacitors available on the market as well. Made of conductive polymer materials and featuring SMD facedown terminals, which help enable low ESL and higher capacitance values in small case sizes, F38 Series capacitors exhibit high conductivity, low ESR, low ESL, and
