AVX Corporation (Greenville, SC) has announced that the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) has issued Drawings for high-reliability versions of its Accu-P thin film capacitor series, which exhibits both extremely low capacitance values (0.05 pF) and ultra-tight capacitance tolerances (±0.01 pF). Ideal for RF amplifiers, mobile and military communications; radar systems, global positioning systems, filters, VCOs, and matching networks, among a host of other applications, AVX’s Accu-P capacitor series also exhibits low ESR and high Q at VHF, UHF, and microwave frequencies. The Accu-P capacitors:
- Are composed of very low-loss dielectric materials in conjunction with highly conductive electrode metals.
- Exhibit excellent RF power handling capabilities in both small signal and RF power applications.
- Demonstrates high stability with respect to time, temperature, frequency, and voltage variation, as well as excellent solderability and leach resistance.
