AVX high voltage capacitors

AVX Corp. now offers smaller case sizes, higher voltage ranges and higher capacitance values in its high-voltage surface mount capacitor range. AVX's high-voltage ceramic capacitors are now available in case sizes ranging from 0805 to 3640 with voltage ratings from 600V to 5000V and capacitance values of 10pF to .56µF.

"Today's applications require the electronics designer to meet more challenging requirements in terms of functionality and circuit density. As a result, we are seeing an increased demand for higher capacitance values and higher voltage ratings in applications such as power supplies or those found in specialised equipment in the telecom, communications, military, aerospace and medical sectors," said Scott Harris, global product manager for high voltage products. "Our recent developments in ceramics manufacturing have allowed AVX to make some significant advancements for capacitance values and voltage ratings in a given case size. In several instances, what we provided a customer a year ago in a large style case size is now available in one or two case sizes smaller."

These new values are available in all terminations including tin, tin/lead and AVX's flexible termination called Flexiterm. The Flexiterm technology was developed to prevent flexture cracks and minimise thermal issues with ceramic devices and is available for voltage ratings up to 3,000V.

The high-voltage capacitors and the recently extended values are available from stock or via an authorised distribution partner.
