AVX Corporation (Greenville, SC) has announced the new THH 230ºC Hermetic Series high temperature SMD tantalum capacitors. THH Series tantalum capacitors also exhibit superior stability in high temperature, humid, and ambient atmosphere environments and are impervious to the capacitance drop common to high temperature operation, enabling significant size reductions, lower components counts, and reliability improvements in high temperature applications such as down-hole oil drilling. Features include:

  • Encased in hermetically sealed ceramic packages.
  • Broad range of capacitance values.
  • Temperature range of -55º to +230ºC.
  • Volumetric efficiency.
  • Extended minimum lifetime of 1,000 hours.
