AVX Corporation announced significant expansions to its portfolio of tantalum polymer capacitors, which is currently comprised of its TCJ, TCM,TCN, and F38 Series. AVX has released 34 new tantalum solid electrolytic chip capacitors with conductive polymer electrodes or multianodes since May 2013, which expanded its portfolio to more than 50 parts, including both the highest voltage tantalum polymer capacitors in the industry at 125 V and the highest CV tantalum polymer capacitors currently available in a 0603 case size. Moreover, an additional 32 components are scheduled for release by the end of this calendar year, at which point the portfolio will have grown to include more than 80 unique devices.
AVX's tantalum polymer capacitors are available in voltages spanning 2.5V to an industry-leading 125 V and in case sizes ranging from the miniature 0603 to the large, but low profile 7343-20 and 7361-20. Featuring conductive polymer electrodes or multianodes, which reduce ignition failure modes, AVX's portfolio of tantalum polymer capacitors exhibit high capacitance, high voltage, and low ESR capabilities. Ideal applications for the series range from consumer applications - such as smartphones, portable gaming devices, MP3 players, and tablet PCs - to high voltage applications, including: telecommunications equipment, base stations, switching hubs, router and line filters, and DC/DC converters in LED TVs and notebook computer power supplies.
Lead time for AVX's TCJ, TCM, TCN, and F38 Series tantalum polymer capacitors is 8-12 weeks.
