AVX surface mount chip capacitors

AVX Corp. has developed a low profile, surface mount chip capacitor specifically designed for tip and ring telecom applications.

Designated the tip and ring capacitor, the capacitor features a standard nickel barrier solder plate termination and are compatible with standard surface mount reflow processes. The Flexiterm termination is now offered in the tip and ring capacitors.

The capacitor has a X7R dielectric rating from -55C to 125C with a capacitance value of up to 1.2micofarad. The MLC, surface mount chip capacitor has a 250Vdc telco rating and a dielectric withstanding voltage of 625V. EIA sizes range from 0805 to 2225 with a maximum thickness of 0.080-inch.

Scott Harris, AVX product marketing manager for advanced products, said surface mount chip capacitor offers surge protection suitable for PCMCIA cards with low profile chips as well as high-density, low-profile telecom applications.

The capacitor is also offered in Flexiterm termination that prevents PCB flexture cracks, or in tin lead termination without the Flexiterm option.

Available in tape and reel packaging for high volume handling, typical pricing for the surface mount capacitor starts at $0.15 in quantities of 10,000 with delivery from stock to 10 weeks.
