Designed for high current, high power and high temperature applications, these stacked capacitors have very low ESR (Equivalent Series Resistance) and ESL (Equivalent Series Inductance). SMPS Series capacitors offer design and component engineers a proven technology specifically designed for programs requiring high reliability performance in harsh environments.
The SMPS Series capacitors offer superior volumetric efficiency in compared to other capacitor technologies. Their proven performance is evidenced by their ongoing use for military and aerospace projects that require the highest reliability. AVX is the main supplier of capacitors for the power distribution system in the International Space Station, (ISS) and the company's SMPS Series capacitors are also used extensively on military and commercial satellites, major missile programs, and other aerospace and avionics applications.
SMPS Series capacitors are primarily used for input/output filters of high power and high voltage power supplies as well as in bus filters and DC snubbers for high power inverters and other high current applications. These capacitors are available with through-hole and surface mount leads. Operating temperature range is -55°C to +125°C.
