AVX (Greenville, SC) has released an updated version of its SpiTanIII tantalum and niobium oxide (Oxicap) capacitor simulation software, which helps electronic design engineers model and build stable, robust, and reliable designs. Featuring an expanded library of more than 3,000 part numbers and a new two-capacitor comparison function, SpiTanIII V2.0 allows engineers to access the all of the basic characteristics and parameters for AVX’s standard, polymer, wet, and conformally coated tantalum capacitors – including the new TCM Series tantalum polymer multianode chip capacitors and the recently acquired F-Series capacitors – in addition to its niobium oxide (Oxicap) capacitors. Features include:
- Equivalent series resistance (ESR).
- Dissipation factor (DF).
- Ripple current, ripple voltage, and leakage current (DCL).
