AVX Corporation recently rolled out new TCJ 100V and 125V tantalum polymer capacitors. The new surface mount chip capacitors provide excellent capacitance and ultra-low ESR in a compact case size. TCJ series capacitors can be used for a wide array of high-voltage applications, including telecommunications equipment, base stations, switching hubs, router and line filters, DC/DC converters in LED TVs and notebook computer power supplies, and other industrial applications.

TCJ series high voltage tantalum polymer SMD capacitors exhibit a benign failure mode, which eliminates the ignition failures that can occur in standard MnO2 tantalum technology, increases robustness, and mitigates any tendency to overload or burn. Subjected to strict ageing and screening processes to ensure that all parts demonstrate the highest reliability, the company's TCJ series capacitors maintain high reliability exceeding 1 per cent per 1,000 hours at 85C and full-rated voltage.

Rated for use from -55C to 105C, AVX's 100V and 125V TCJ Series SMD capacitors feature small case sizes (2924 for the 100V and 2917 for the 125V), low profiles, and are halogen-free in accordance with the criteria for environmentally responsible product design that were recently adopted by several other major electronics manufacturers. Compatible with high-speed pick and place manufacturing processes, the new high voltage capacitors are available on 177.8mm and 330.2mm reels with RoHS friendly pure tin termination finish.
