Film Chip Capacitors

Tue, 10/30/2001 - 8:03am
AVX now offers Film Chip capacitors in 1206 and 1210 case sizes with a new PPS dielectric. Ideal for use in low voltage applications, these capacitors feature low dielectric absorption, superior thermal shock resistance and capacitance values which are constant over a wide temperature range. Designated the PPS CF Series, these capacitors are compatible with both flow and reflow soldering techniques and offer low ESR and ESL values.

AVX's PPS CF Series capacitors feature extremely low power dissipation and have no piezoelectric effect. The intrinsic elasticity of the dielectric film used makes these devices compatible with all types of printed circuit board (PCB) materials.

Applications include use in automotive navigation systems, industrial lighting and power supplies as well as in telecom applications such as GSM PLL circuits and ADSL systems. The PPS CF Series capacitors are available in 1206 and 1210 case sizes, with 1812 in development. These devices feature capacitance values from 1 nF to 100 nF with tolerances to ± 2%. Rated voltage ranges from 16 V DC to 50 V DC, with operating temperatures ranging from -55°C to +125°C.
