AVX (Greenville, SC) has released its new TCN PulseCap Series tantalum solid electrolytic chip capacitors, a polymer electrode version of AVX’s industry-favorite, high capacitance, and high energy TLN PulseCap Series. TCN PulseCap Series capacitors are ideal for use as energy bank capacitors in solid state drives (eSSDs) and external hard disk drives (eHHDs), as well as for a wide range of wireless transmitters, including smart meters and smartcards. Features include:

  • Capacitance range spanning 220µF to 1500µF.
  • Undertab terminations for high volumetric efficiency.
  • High PCB assembly density.
  • Conductive polymer cathode for reduced ignition.
  • Low ESR.
