AVX Corp. has announced a 500VDC and 250VDC, 0603 case size surface mount organic RF capacitors that can support frequencies from 1MHz-5GHz. The MLO3 series can maintain high Q and high self-resonance while providing low ESR values at high frequencies, noted the company. The polymer-based organic capacitors use high-conductivity copper interconnects in a multi-layer fashion.

The ability to fabricate these components on large area substrates with sophisticated laser- direct imaging yields low profile, low ESR and high-performance RF capacitors with improved cost benefits and tolerance control. Additionally, AVX's MLO capacitors are expansion matched to PCBs for improved reliability, indicated AVX.

The RoHS-compliant RF capacitors are rated for 50-500VDC, and feature capacitance values ranging from 0.1-2.5pF and capacitance tolerance to 0.02pF. Available in with a 100 per cent tin finish, the MLO3 series features stable NPO characteristics and an operating temperature range of -55C to 125C.

AVX's MLO3 series surface mount capacitors are geared for RF power and low noise amplifiers, filter networks and MRI systems.
