AVX Corp. in Myrtle Beach, S.C., is offering a small, stackable multilayer capacitor (MLC) series in an effort to increase printed circuit board (PCB) space. The TurboCap MLCs are designed to handle high ripple current at high frequencies and high power levels. The rugged TurboCap MLC Series is suited for filters in the input and output stages of DC-DC converters and switch mode power supplies (SMPS). The TurboCap is available in two styles, ST12 and ST20, and a standard or high-reliability version. The TurboCap has a maximum voltage rating of 100 volts, features a X7R dielectric formulation, and has a temperature coefficient of -55 to 125 degrees Celsius. DIP leads in either thru-hole or surface-mount configurations offer stress relief to the ceramic elements. The leads decouple the parts from the board and minimize thermally or mechanically induced stresses encountered during assembly, temperature cycling, or other environmental conditions.
