Tantalum multianode capacitor targets high-power apps

A tantalum multianode capacitor that targets high-power apps has been introduced by AVX Corp. The high-capacitance 2,200?F at 2.5V capacitor expands the company's TPM series of tantalum multianode capacitors.

With many ICs, including power processors, operating at voltages around 1V, this 2.5V capacitor provides high capacitance and low equivalent series resistance of 18mW for these high-performance power applications.

The 2,200?F TPM capacitor can reduce the component count in power processor applications from five 1,000?F low-ESR polymer capacitors typically required for this application, to three of the 2,200?F TPM capacitors.

The TPM series of capacitors is available up to 50Vdc with capacitance values ranging from 10 to 2200?F. The TPM 2200 ?F capacitor comes in an E (7343) case size.

Pricing starts at $3.00 each for the TPM 2,000?F device. It is available from stocks, or up to 13 weeks.
