AVX introduces tantalum capacitors for boosting transmitter power in wireless express cards

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C., 8 Jan. 2008. AVX Corp. in Myrtle Beach, S.C., has developed a high-capacitance 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.

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C., 8 Jan. 2008.AVX Corp. in Myrtle Beach, S.C., has developed a PulseCap high-capacitance 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 contact AVX online at www.avx.com.
