AVX Adds Three New High Voltage Ratings SMPS Capacitor Series
AVX  (Greenville, SC) has expanded its series of high temperature, SXP-style, encapsulated, radial leaded, switch mode power supply (SMPS) multilayer ceramic capacitors (MLCCs) to include three new high voltage ratings: 1500V, 2000V, and 3000V. Capable of withstanding operating temperatures as high as 200°C, voltage ratings for the SXP-style SMPS capacitor series now span 50-3000V. AVX’s SXP-style SMPS capacitors provide critical mechanical protection for the ceramic element, enabling their use as DC filters in high power, high frequency motor drives, high pulsed-current circuitry, and a range of other extreme high temperature and harsh environment applications, such as: downhole oil exploration, including logging while drilling and geophysical probes, and various space, aerospace, and hybrid automotive applications. Features include:
- Exhibits low ESR, low ESL, low DCL, and high frequency performance.
- Availability in four sizes with voltage ratings spanning 50V to 3000V.
- Capacitance values spanning 100pF to 12µF.
- Availability in C0G (NP0) and VHT, both of which are available with tolerance ratings of ±5%, ±10%, ±20%.
