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

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 of chip capacitors uses copper electrodes in place of standard precious-metal electrodes, and provides 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.
