SLC capacitors

AVX Corp. has expanded its family of proprietary high k, intergranular barrier layer dielectric systems with the introduction of the Ultra Maxi series. These single-layer ceramic (SLC) capacitors claim a record high dielectric constant at 60,000 with X7R characteristics.

Similar to AVX's Maxi and Maxi+ product offerings, the Ultra Maxi SLC capacitors feature X7R characteristics and a dielectric constant of 60,000, which is double the previous industry high for Grain Boundary Barrier Layer (GBBL) formulations.

Available in voltage ratings of 6.3-, 16- and 25Vdc, the Ultra Maxi series is also said to set a new standard for circuit miniaturization. "On average, the required board mounting area will be reduced by approximately two-thirds when compared to an equivalent capacitance value in our Maxi+ series," said Larry Eisenberger, AVX product marketing manager, in a statement.

The Ultra Maxi devices are RoHS compliant and Pb-free. Applications include broadband bypass and optical networking.

Delivery is four to six weeks. Samples and custom configurations are available on request.
