AVX (Greenville, SC) has surpassed previous milestones with the introduction of the new TCJ 100V and 125V tantalum polymer capacitors. The new surface-mount chip capacitors are the highest rated voltage tantalum capacitors currently on the market. By maintaining 20% recommended voltage derating, TCJ series capacitors significantly extend the useable voltage range and can be used for a wide array of high-voltage applications, including telecommunications equipment, base stations, switching hubs, router and line filters, DC/DC converters in LED TVs and notebook computer power supplies, and a host industrial applications. Features include:
- Capacitance and ultra-low ESR in a compact case size.
- A benign failure mode, which eliminates the ignition failures that can occur in standard MnO2 tantalum technology, increases robustness, and mitigates any tendency to overload or burn.
- Reliability exceeding 1% per 1,000 hours at 85ºC and full-rated voltage.
