Capacitor Technology

A new capacitor technology, OxiCap™ from AVX offers a host of environmental advantages while delivering high performance. These devices use Niobium Oxide which, unlike Tantalum is cheap and readily available — yet they can be manufactured on existing standard tantalum processing lines. One of the key advantages of the NbO technology is its non-burn characteristics, which mean that failed devices are guaranteed not to burn up to the rated voltage. OxiCap capacitors exhibit reliability figures of 0.2% per 1000 hours, 2x to 5x better than comparable Tantalum products, while remaining comparable on temperature stability, frequency response and electrical parameters. Other features of these capacitors include: total traceability; reduced voltage derating; temperature rating up to 125° C; rated voltage of under 10 V and EIA case sizes that are the same as Tantalum devices.
