AVX Corp. in Myrtle Beach, S.C., has developed a PulseCap capacitor in a low-profile package for applications such as PCMCIA/USB wireless express cards, where bulk capacitance is necessary to boost transmitter power. These large case size tantalum products are rated at 2200 microfarads and 6.3 volts. A maximum case height of 2 millimeters makes them suitable for reduced-height applications. The undertab termination style–where traditional “J” leads are replaced by terminations that do not protrude outside of the outline of the case–increases volumetric efficiency and allows parts to be positioned closely together, delivering significant space savings. PulseCap devices are RoHS-compatible and capable of withstanding a soldering profile of 3x reflow at 260 degrees Celsius. Operating temperature range is -55 to 125 C. Other applications include: wireless data cards, metering, and sensors. For more information, visit AVX online at www.avx.com.
