AVX Corporation revealed what it claims as the world's lowest profile high CV tantalum capacitor, the 47F 8V 1206-06 D case TACmicrochip. Both thin and flat, the new 1206-06 TACmicrochip Series capacitors measure 3.4mm in length, 1.8mm in width and feature a maximum height of 0.6mm, which is 0.15mm shorter than the existing 1206 V case TACmicrochip capacitor.

Exhibiting high CV performance in an extremely thin package, in addition to all of the standard benefits of tantalum technologyincluding inherent immunity to piezoelectric noise, and higher stability, reliability, and temperature performance than comparable MLCCsthe 1206-06 D case TACmicrochip Series capacitors are ideal for use in audio and power amplifier modules, and as coupling/decoupling capacitors in handheld electronics.

Capable of being embedded in 0.8mm-thick PCBs or designed into the latest generation of extremely thin handheld devices, the 1206-06 TACmicrochip capacitors are well suited for employment in a wide variety of embedded electronics applications, including near field communication (NFC) systems and smart cards, such as bank cards, SIM cards, identification cards, and access control cards.

"The new thin and flat D case TACmicrochip capacitor is our latest response to the industry's steady demand for higher volumetric efficiency. Despite the on-chip integration of many components, passive discrete components still occupy a majority of board space in PCB designs; hence, we are now penetrating the PCB with a new generation of embeddable components," said Mitch Weaver, member of the technical staff at AVX.

Manufactured using a tantalum wafer process to achieve the high levels of mechanical tolerance required for ultra miniature devices, TACmicrochip Series capacitors feature an enhanced internal construction that eliminates the space-consuming elements of conventional moulded J-leaded tantalum capacitors, including the anode wire, lead frame and the need for larger wall thicknesses.

The 1206-06 TACmicroship Series capacitors are supplied with lead-free, 100 per cent tin terminations and are rated for use in temperatures spanning -55C to 125C. Lead time for the new TACmicrochip Series capacitors is 10-14 weeks.
