AVX (Greenville, SC) has announced the availability of its new TCH Series hermetically sealed tantalum polymer chip capacitors for aerospace and other high-reliability applications. Hermetically sealed in ceramic cases filled with inert gasses to eliminate material and performance degradation resulting from exposure to high temperature, high humidity, and ambient atmosphere, TCH Series capacitors exhibit excellent performance stability in aerospace and other high-reliability applications, as well as enable a significant payload reduction for power supplies. Features include:

  • Conductive polymer electrodes.
  • Low ESR and low derating capabilities.
  • High ripple current.
  • High capacitance (1.5-680µF).
  • Highest voltages (10-100V) of any space-grade SMD tantalum polymer capacitor currently available on the market.
