AVX announces tantalum polymer capacitors that allow design engineers to further reduce the size of portable electronic devices. Designated the TCJ series, the capacitors are one to three capacitance value (CV) levels higher than other devices on the market. AVX can now offer 100µF, 4 V in a 0805 size; 47µF, 6.3 V in the 1206 size; and 10µF, 6.3 V in the 1210 size. The capacitors offer an operating voltage up to 12 V, a 125° C operating temperature range and guaranteed ESR. They can also withstand three times reflow profile up to 260°C and comply with RoHS requirements.
