AVX SQ SERIES CAPACITORS OFFER HIGH CURRENT, HIGH Q AND LOW ESR
AVX Corporation has developed porcelain and ceramic dielectric multilayer capacitor (MLC) chips with a new internal construction that allows for as much as 40 percent lower equivalent series resistance than in previous versions. Designated the SQ Series, the chips are ideal for RF/microwave applications ranging from 10 MHz to 4.2 GHz.
The new design has a fine-grained, high density, high purity dielectric material to keep out moisture, and includes heavy internal palladium electrodes. This makes the SQ Series ideal for applications with high current carrying capabilities and high quality factors. The capacitors also offer very low ESR and very high series resonance.
Applications such as microwave RF/IF amplifiers, mixers, oscillators, low noise amplifiers, and filter networks, as well as medical devices such as MRI coils, would all benefit from the SQ Series’ characteristics. Available in 1210 and 0605 sizes with voltages up to 500 VDC, the SQ Series offers superior stability under the stresses of changing voltage, frequency, time and temperature.
