GREENVILLE, S.C. -- February 12, 2013

AVX Corporation, a leading manufacturer of advanced passive components and
interconnect solutions, has introduced a new series of low profile,
best-in-class 0805 MLO™ diplexers. Based on its patented multilayer organic
high density interconnect technology, AVX’s new MLO diplexers incorporate high
dielectric constant and low loss materials to realize high Q printed passive
elements, such as inductors and capacitors in multilayer stack ups. Featuring
low insertion losses, low parasitics, a low profile (<0.6mm), and excellent
solderability, the new 0805 Series diplexers support several wireless
standards, including WCDMA, CDMA, WLAN, and GSM, and are ideally suited for
band switching in dual and multiband systems.

“AVX’s MLO technology has enabled us to create diplexers with lower insertion
losses and better attenuation than equivalent LTCC products,” said Larry
Eisenberger, senior marketing application engineer at AVX.

AVX’s 0805 Series diplexers measure a diminutive 2.12mm x 1.28mm x 0.55mm
(0.083” x 0.050” x 0.021”), are rated for use in temperatures ranging from
-40°C to +85°C, feature a maximum power capacity of 4.5W, and are expansion
matched to most PCB materials.

Available in four frequencies and two terminations (Au and Ni/Sn), both of
which are compatible with automatic soldering technologies, AVX’s 0805 Series
diplexers feature standard tape and reel packaging and are 100% tested for
electrical parameters and visual characteristics.
