NASA Approves AVX's Space-Level X7R BME MLCCs for US Military & Aerospace Applications

AVX Corporation has announced that, after several years of extensive testing, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has approved its space-level X7R base metal electrode (BME) multilayer ceramic capacitors (MLCCs) for use in US military and aerospace applications under the criteria of the S-311-P-838 specification. This specification defines the requirements for high reliability, ceramic dielectric, multilayer, base-metal electrode, fixed value chip capacitors for high reliability space applications, in addition to the processing verification and inspections required by assemblies used in flight, and officially makes AVX the first (and currently only) supplier of BME capacitors approved for use in US space applications. Featuring Flexiterm® terminations, AVX's space-level X7R BME MLCCs also provide considerably enhanced resistance to mechanical stress by allowing for more board flexure than standard terminations. Currently available in five case sizes spanning 0603 to 1812 and three capacitance tolerances (±5%, ±10%, and ±20%), the series is rated for 16–100V and 2.2nF to 8.2µF, and is ideal for I/O filtering and bulk storage in the switch mode power supplies (SMPS) in space and satellite communications, military defense and weapons, and radar systems. AVX's space-level BME MLCCs in case sizes 0603–1812 are also the first such capacitors approved for use in European Space applications by virtue of having recently been added to the European Space Association's (ESA's) Qualified Parts List (QPL) under the criteria of the European Space Components Coordination's (ESCC's) 3009/041 specification.

AVX Corporation Introduces New T4J Medical Series Tantalum SMD Capacitors

AVX Corporation has introduced the new T4J Medical Series tantalum SMD capacitors. Specifically designed for use in implantable, non-life-support and non-implantable life support medical applications, T4J Medical Series capacitors exhibit high standard reliability of fewer than 0.1% failures per 1,000 hours at 25°C and rated voltage, which is 10 times better than standard commercial reliability, and low standard leakage current values of 0.01CV. Manufactured and screened using AVX's patented and extremely effective Q-Process to ensure the removal of any components that may experience parametric shifts through customer processing or display instability through life testing, T4J Medical Series capacitors feature two levels of statistical screening: T4J Standard for standard DCL and ESR limits, and T4J Custom for specific DCL and ESR parameter limits, available down to 0.005CV on selected codes. RoHS-compliant and lead-free compatible, T4J Medical Series tantalum SMD capacitors are available in six case sizes spanning 1,206 to 2,924, seven voltages spanning 6.3V to 50V, and two terminations: 100% tin or SnPb. Capacitance values for the series span 1µF to 680µF with a tolerance of ±10%, and operating temperatures span -55°C to +125°C. T4J Medical Series capacitors are available packed on 7 reels or in bulk, and lead time for the series is 12 weeks.
