AVX Corporation has developed a broadband capacitor that addresses DC blocking issues from 16 kHz (-3dB roll-off) to 40 GHz by providing low insertion and return losses. The broadband capacitor is ideal for applications such as semiconductor data communications, receiver optical subassemblies, trans-impedance amplifiers and test equipment.
Designed utilizing AVX's patented precision termination process, the GX Series ultra-broadband capacitor is completely orientation insensitive with a standard EIA 0402 footprint to minimize board space requirements, and is available with X5R or X7S dielectric characteristic.
Both nickel-gold and nickel-tin terminations are available to cover a wide range of attachment processes. All GX Series parts are RoHS compliant.
Pricing for the GX Series starts at $1.00 to $1.50, depending on style, lead time of six weeks.
