avx corp (AVX) Key Developments

AVX Introduces New High Temperature Solutions Catalog

AVX Corp. has introduced its first applications-based catalog, the new High Temperature Solutions catalog, which provides engineers with detailed information about the various passive component solutions that AVX specifically designs, manufactures, and qualifies for exceptional performance in high temperature applications up to 250°C, including down-hole oil exploration, military, and aerospace. Well organized, effectively illustrated, and easily navigable, the new High Temperature Solutions catalog contains at-a-glance product line previews and full product datasheets for high performance, high temperature components including: tantalum capacitors, surface mount ceramic capacitors, switched mode power supply (SMPS) capacitors, glass capacitors, RF/microwave capacitors, circuit protection and signal integrity devices, NTC thermistors, and advanced EMI filters. It also includes application notes intended to help engineers implement AVX products in applications within extreme temperature, high pressure, and high mechanical stress down-hole environments, which have always been some of the toughest for passive components.

AVX Corporation Introduces the Lowest Profile Poke-Home Connector

AVX Corporation has introduced the lowest profile poke-home connector currently available on the market. Featuring its industry-proven 2mm dual beam, high spring-force, phosphor bronze poke-home contacts in a sleek 3.0mm pitch by 2.5mm high SMT package, the new horizontal 9296 Series connector is certified to UL 1977 and CAN/CSA C22.2 specifications, and accepts any combination of 20 “26AWG solid or stranded wires, providing quick, reliable, and cost effective wire-to-board termination in a broad range of harsh industrial, commercial, and medical applications. Rated for 300V, up to 8A, and operating temperatures spanning -40 °C to +130 °C, the new low-profile 9296 Series poke-home connectors, available in 1 “6 positions, meet harsh industrial performance standards and provide maximum mechanical stability and wire retention despite enabling simple strip-and-insert electrical connections and twist-and-pull wire extraction. Specific applications for which the series is ideally suited include: machine controls, such as motors, drives, solenoids, sensors, fans, and pumps; commercial building controls and security and fire sensors; medical equipment and sensors; smart grid meters, breakers, and panels; and SSL/LED bulbs, fixtures, signage, and streetlights. Smaller and more functional than the only directly competing connector on the market ” featuring a 2.5mm vs. 2.7mm height and 1 “6 positions vs. 1 “3, accepting 20 “26AWG solid or stranded wire vs. 22 “26AWG solid, and offering current and voltage ratings up to 8A vs. 3A ” the RoHS-compliant 9296 Series horizontal SMT poke home connector features a mechanical durability of three cycles and is supplied on tape and reel for single contact automated placement and SMT reflow. Lead time for the series is stock to nine weeks.

AVX Announces New 10,000-Hour Lifespan for its TCH Series Hermetically Sealed Tantalum Polymer Chip Capacitors

AVX Corporation has announced that its TCH Series hermetically sealed tantalum polymer chip capacitors for aerospace, defense, and other high-reliability applications are now rated for extended lifespans of up to 10,000 hours. Developed with the European Space Agency (ESA) to suit aerospace applications, TCH Series capacitors are hermetically sealed in ceramic cases filled with inert gasses to eliminate material and performance degradation resulting from exposure to high temperature, high humidity, and ambient atmosphere. They also feature low ESR conductive polymer electrodes and exhibit low derating capabilities, low leakage current (0.1CV), high ripple current, high capacitance (22µF to 680µF), and the higher voltages (10-100V) of any space-grade SMD tantalum polymer capacitor currently available on the market. Manufactured and screened using AVX's patented and extremely effective Q-Process, which ensures the removal of any components that may experience parametric shifts through customer processing or display instability through life testing, TCH Series capacitors exhibit an impressive FIT rate of 1% per 1,000 hours at 85ºC and rated voltage with 0.1O/V series impedance, making them ideal for use in a variety of high-reliability applications, including: aerospace, defense, pulse power, and power supplies. Rated for use in temperatures spanning -55ºC to +125ºC, and housed in large CTC-21D cases that weigh a slight 2.4g each – which enables a significant payload reduction when employed in aerospace power supplies – AVX's new TCH Series hermetically sealed tantalum polymer chip capacitors are currently available with seven capacitance values (22, 47, 100, 150, 220, 330, and 680µF), five voltages (10, 16, 25, 35, and 100V), and two terminations: J-lead and undertab. The dimensions for TCH Series capacitors with J-leads are: 11.5mm x 12.5mm x 6.15mm. Dimensions for TCH Series capacitors with undertab terminations are: 11.0mm x 12.5mm x 5.95mm. In addition, 33µF/75V and 680µF/16V TCH Series capacitors are currently available as engineering samples, and 16 more are actively under development. Components are supplied in either waffle or bulk packaging, and lead time for the series is 14 weeks.
