Ultra-miniature chip capacitors for RF and microwave communications introduced by AVX

FOUNTAIN INN, S.C., 12 Dec. 2012. AVX Corp. in Greenville, S.C., is introducing ultra-miniature chip capacitors for RF and microwave communications applications such as power amplifiers, handheld devices, GPS, vehicle location systems, and matching networks for wireless local-area networks (LANs).

The AVX CU series chip capacitors have copper electrodes in place of standard precious metal electrodes, and provide low ESR, high Q, and tight tolerances.

Available in 01005 and 0201 case sizes, the copper electrode chip capacitors are composed of C0G (NP0) temperature-compensating EIA Class I ceramic materials -- one of the most stable dielectrics available, AVX officials say.

The capacitors also have lead-free, nickel. and tin-plated terminations. The temperature coefficient of capacitance for the series is 0plus-or-minus 30ppm/degrees Celsius from -55 to +125 C.

Capacitance value and working voltage vary by case size. The 01005 CU series capacitors have a capacitance value range of 0.5 - 6.2pF and a working voltage of 16 volts DC. The 0201 capacitors have a capacitance value of 0.5 -- 22pF and a working voltage of 25 volts DC.
