AVX Corporation has introduced the sub-millimeter 0201 TACmicrochip® tantalum capacitor. Measuring only 0.6mm x 0.35mm x 0.35 mm, the 0201 E case TACmicrochip Series SMD tantalum capacitors deliver high CV (0.47Î¼F / 6.3V) and low leakage (0.01CV) in an extremely small package, as well as exhibit all of the standard benefits of tantalum technology, including: inherent immunity to piezoelectric noise and higher stability, higher reliability, and higher temperature performance than comparable MLCCs.
Electrically and mechanically robust, TACmicrochip Series capacitors provide long lifecycle performance ideal for use in miniature, wearable medical devices, audio and power amplifier modules, and as coupling/decoupling capacitors in handheld electronics. The 0201 E case TACmicrochip capacitors extend the series application range to include PCB embedded electronics applications, including near field communication (NFC) systems and smart cards, such as: bank cards, SIM cards, identification cards, and access control cards.
Manufactured using a tantalum wafer process to achieve the high levels of mechanical tolerance required for ultra miniature devices, TACmicrochip Series capacitors feature an enhanced internal construction that eliminates the space-consuming elements of conventional molded J-leaded tantalum capacitors, including the anode wire, lead frame, and the need for larger wall thicknesses. The 0201 TACmicroship Series capacitors are supplied with lead-free, 100% tin terminations and are rated for use in temperatures spanning -55°C to +125°C. Lead time for the new TACmicrochip Series capacitors is 10-14 weeks.
