AVX Corp. has announced a series of fused high CV tantalum SMD chip capacitors with undertab terminations. According to the company, the F98-AS1 series capacitors feature a proprietary lead-frame-less structure with precise dimensions and low stress packaging, an internal thin film fuse that protects against short circuits, and well-established undertab termination technology, which allows high volumetric efficiency and high PCB assembly density.

Packaged in a 0805 (2012 metric) S case with four ratings (22uF/10V, 33uF/10V, 10uF/16V and 1uF/35V) and a 0.9mm maximum height, the F98-AS1 series claims to be the smallest and thinnest SMD fused tantalum product available on the market. As such, the series is geared for a variety of applications in which safety and size are a primary concern including: automotive, commercial, industrial and medical applications, and the input/output lines of small power supply circuits, portable gaming devices and smartphones.

F98-AS1 series

F98-AS1 series capacitors are rated at 85°C and designed for use in temperatures spanning -55°C to 125°C. The series is also lead-free compatible and RoHS compliant.

Series extensions currently in development include a 0805 (2012 metric) case 47uF/10V capacitor and 10 capacitors packaged in 0603 (1608 metric) M cases: a 1uF/25V component, a 1uF/20V component, 10V components rated for 2.2uF, 4.7uF, 10uF, 22uF and 33uF, and 16V components rated for 1uF, 2.2uF and 4.7uF.
