AVX’s New 125V Tantalum Polymer SMD Capacitors Surpass Previous 100V Milestone
AVX  (Greenville, SC) has surpassed previous milestones with the introduction of the new TCJ 100V and 125V tantalum polymer capacitors. The new surface-mount chip capacitors are the highest rated voltage tantalum capacitors currently on the market. By maintaining 20% recommended voltage derating, TCJ series capacitors significantly extend the useable voltage range and can be used for a wide array of high-voltage applications, including telecommunications equipment, base stations, switching hubs, router and line filters, DC/DC converters in LED TVs and notebook computer power supplies, and a host industrial applications. Features include:
- Capacitance and ultra-low ESR in a compact case size.
- A benign failure mode, which eliminates the ignition failures that can occur in standard MnO2 tantalum technology, increases robustness, and mitigates any tendency to overload or burn.
- Reliability exceeding 1% per 1,000 hours at 85ºC and full-rated voltage.
