Featuring X5R characteristics, GX0S Series ultra broadband capacitors are ideal for semiconductor data communications, transmit and receive optical subassemblies, transimpedance amplifiers, and test equipment. Utilizing AVX's patented precision thin film termination process, GX0S Series Ultra Broadband Capacitors are well suited for high volume solder assembly and are available with two termination options to expand the range of compatible attachment processes: Ni/Sn terminations, which are standard, or Ni/Au terminations, which are wire bondable and can therefore prove particularly useful in bypass applications. Packaged on 3" tape and reel in quantities of 500, 1000, or 4000 pieces, all GX0S products are RoHS compliant. Lead time for the series is stock to six weeks ARO.
