AVX Corporation Announces Broadest Offering of Stacked SMPS MLCCs Rated to 200degreesC

AVX Corporation extended its high temperature SMX Series stacked SMPS MLCCs with the addition of new 25V ratings in case sizes 3-5 and 500V ratings in every case size (1-6), making it the broadest offering of stacked SMPS MLCCs rated to 200degC currently available in the industry. Providing several significant advantages over both typical MIL-qualified MLCCs (which are only rated to 125degC) and comparable wet tantalum capacitors, SMX Series MLCCs exhibit excellent high frequency performance, exceptional capacitance retention with frequency, high current handling capabilities, a wide frequency response in high pulse, high current applications, and low ESR, ESL, and DC leakage. Specifically designed for use in high temperature, harsh environment applications up to 200degC, SMX Series stacked SMPS MLCCs are constructed using high temperature solder and exhibit rugged thermal shock, mechanical shock, moisture resistance, and vibration resistance capabilities per MIL-STD-202. SMX Series capacitors are ideal for use in down-hole oil, gas, and mineral exploration equipment, including geophysical and geothermal probes, seismic sensors, and signal amplifiers. The series is also ideal for use in military, defense, and weapons systems; space and satellite communications equipment; automotive underhood and hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) applications; and rugged AC/DC power converters (e.g., those that supply AC power from onshore power grids to offshore oil platforms). Additionally, SMX Series capacitors are particularly well suited for use as DC filters in high power, high frequency ripple currents, high pulsed-current circuitry, and a range of low power electronics; EMI filters on AC inputs; DC link capacitors for AC/AC and DC/AC motor drive inverters; and start-and-run capacitors in AC induction motors, including those designed into the rotary drills, mud pumps, draw works, conveyors, compressors, and blowers installed on oil platforms. Available in both C0G and X7R dielectrics, SMX Series stacked SMPS capacitors are available in six case sizes with voltage ratings spanning 25V to 500V and capacitance values spanning 0.0039uF to 270uF. Operating temperatures for the series range from -55degC to 200degC. SMX Series capacitors are also available with several customization options, including: custom geometries, packages, terminals, lead configurations, and stress relief mounting options, all of which allow engineers to achieve higher efficiency, space-saving designs with enhanced mechanical and thermal reliability. Further, performance characteristics for the series, including: temperature vs. applied current, ESR and impedance vs. frequency, maximum current vs. frequency, maximum ripple voltage vs. frequency, and phase angle vs. frequency, can be modeled using AVX's SpiCalci 8.0 modeling software.

AVX Corporation Announces High Directivity 0302 Thin Film Couplers for WiFi Band Available Through Distribution

AVX Corporation announced that its high directivity 0302 thin film couplers for WiFi bands--including the new, tight tolerance 0302 component--are now available through distribution. The WiFi band couplers are based on multilayer integrated thin film (ITF) technology, which provides the miniature components with excellent high frequency performance across the WiFi spectrum (2,400-5,905MHz) and rugged construction for reliable automatic assembly. Available in 0302, 0402, and 0603 packages, each of which exhibit identical electrical performance, AVX's WiFi band couplers also feature land grid array (LGA) packaging technology, the benefits of which include: inherently low profile, self alignment during reflow, excellent solderability, low parasitics, and effective heat dissipation. AVX's high directivity couplers for WiFi bands are rated for operating temperatures spanning -40degC to +85degC and are supplied with lead-free and RoHS compliant 100% tin terminations compatible with automatic soldering technologies, including: reflow, wave, vapor phase, and manual. Finished parts are 100% tested for electrical parameters and visual characteristics, and each production lot is evaluated on a sample basis for both static humidity and endurance.

AVX Corp. Announces Unaudited Consolidated Financial Results for the First Quarter Ended June 30, 2014; Provides Tax Rate Guidance for the Year 2015

AVX Corp. announced unaudited consolidated financial results for the first quarter ended June 30, 2014.
