AVX (Greenville, SC) has announced the market introduction of the first space-level, base metal electrode (BME), X7R dielectric MLCCs. The new BME MLCCs provide higher capacitance values in significantly smaller cases sizes, reducing both board space and total component weight, which are especially critical in space applications, while maintaining the high reliability performance required by the space industry. Features include:
- Capacitance voltage capabilities superior to those of conventional precious metal electrode MLCCs.
- Sn/Pb plating with Flexiterm terminations, which provide considerably enhanced resistance to mechanical stress by allowing for more than twice as much board flexure as standard terminations.
- Rated for 16-100V and 2.2nF to 8.2µF.
