New SV Series High Voltage, Automotive Grade, Multilayer Ceramic, Radial-Leaded Capacitors

New SV Series High Voltage, Automotive Grade, Multilayer Ceramic, Radial-Leaded Capacitors

FOUNTAIN INN, S.C. (May 12, 2015) – AVX Corporation, a leading manufacturer of passive components and interconnect solutions, has introduced the new SV Series high voltage, automotive grade, multilayer ceramic (MLC), radial-leaded capacitors. Qualified to AEC-Q200 and rated for 1,000VDC, the new SV Series capacitors are designed with C0G (NP0) Class I dielectric materials, which exhibit an extremely low dissipation factor — providing excellent high rms current handling capabilities with minimal power losses in medium to high power resonant converters — and radial leads, which enable the mechanical decoupling of the MLC chip from the board, and provide the maximum mechanical stress relief necessary for harsh automotive applications. Conformally coated to eliminate the potential for arc flashover, SV Series capacitors

New 2MM Vertical Poke-Home WTB Contact for Light Industrial Applications

New 2MM Vertical Poke-Home WTB Contact for Light Industrial Applications

FOUNTAIN INN, S.C. (May 12, 2015) – AVX Corporation, a leading manufacturer of passive components and interconnect solutions, has released a new 2mm vertical poke-home wire-to-board (WTB) contact. The latest addition to AVX’s 70-9296 Series, the new micro contact accepts 26–22AWG solid or stranded wires, supports current ratings as high as 8A, and is 37% smaller than the next smallest offering in the series (a 3mm vertical poke home WTB contact), which makes it compatible with smaller wire gauges and devices, and extends the applications for the series to light industrial electronics, such as display case and under cabinet SSL products with lower current and shorter runs, switches, lighting strips, and motion, pressure, and temperature sensors, amongst several others.

High Performance IDC Contacts for Harsh Environments

High Performance IDC Contacts for Harsh Environments

FOUNTAIN INN, S.C. (MARCH 17, 2015) – AVX Corporation, a leading manufacturer of passive components and interconnect solutions, has introduced a single contact version of its proven 9176 Series insulation displacement connectors (IDCs), which are widely recognized for providing highly reliable, gas-tight wire-to-board connections in a range of harsh environment applications. Backward compatible with existing 9176 Series connectors with regard to contact and footprint, the new 9176-65X single tine IDC contacts exhibit the same robust, reliable performance the series is known for while reducing cost by 25%, width by 50% (2.5mm vs. 5.0mm), and height by 10% (5.05mm vs. 5.6mm), the latter of which is especially valuable for SSL applications, as it helps prevent shadowing. Designed to satisfy the demanding
