Fountain Inn, S.C. ‒ AVX Corp. has extended the capacitance range and voltage ratings for its X7R MLCCs, providing several new high volumetric efficiency options. Available in sizes from 01005 to 2225, the X7R MLCCs exhibit high K and low equivalent series resistance (ESR) and are now available with capacitance values from 100 pF to 47 µF and standard voltage ratings spanning 4V-500V. High-voltage X7R MLCCs with ratings up to 5000V are also available, as are automotive and alternate termination options.
Exhibiting a non-linear TCC within ±15% from -55°C to +125°C, the X7R MLCCs can be used in a variety of industrial applications in which known capacitance changes in response to applied voltage are acceptable. The ceramic capacitors are available in nine standard voltages (4V, 6.3V, 10V, 16V, 25V, 50V, 100V, 200V, and 500V), three capacitance tolerances (±5%, ±10%, and ± 20%), and three terminations (plated Ni/Sn, plated gold, and Flexiterm). The Flexiterm termination is said to enable significantly enhanced mechanical reliability by allowing more than twice as much board flexure as standard terminations. The devices can be packaged on 7” or 13” reels or shipped in bulk with standard lead times. The ceramic capacitors are RoHS compliant.
Applications include decoupling and filtering in mobile, medical, and digital applications, such as cell phones, tablets, high speed processors/FPGAs, and implantable medical devices. The series is also well suited for use as snubbers, resonators, filters, or DC blocking caps in automotive, medical, industrial, and commercial electronics, including displays, high voltage multipliers, high frequency power converters, and SMPS.
