Capacitance Range

Thu, 08/30/2001 - 9:29am
AVX Corp. has increased the capacitance range for its 0508 two-capacitor array up to 1 mF. Designated the W2A2xD Series, these cap arrays are ideal for applications requiring multiple 1mF capacitors. This array package reduces board space by placing two components in the same board space normally occupied by one standard 0805 capacitor, and pick-and-place time is reduced by 50% when compared to discrete capacitors, making this product ideal for high volume applications. These arrays are available in standard dielectrics and in several voltage ratings.

The 0508 capacitor array is ideal for applications that require multiple capacitors of the same high capacitance value. In addition to this products' space savings, the reduction in placement time afforded by the use of these capacitor arrays results in substantially lower assembly costs.

All AVX capacitor array case sizes are available in NP0 and X7R dielectrics, capacitance values range from 10 pF to 470 pF (NP0) and 470 pF to .10 mF (X7R), with extended range options available in the X5R dielectric (.10 mF to 1 mF). Standard capacitance tolerances are ± 10% (NP0) and ± 20% (X7R), with voltage ratings of 6.3 V, 10 V, 16 V, 25 V, 50 V and 100 V. The AVX capacitor arrays are available in tape-and-reel with package options of 1,000, 2,000, 4,000 or 10,000.
