AVX expands voltage rating of MLCC for high power applications

AVX Corporation has extended the working voltage range of its RF multilayer ceramic capacitor (MLCC) from 100VDC to 250VDC. Designated the SQCA Series, the high performance MLCC provides low ESR, high Q, high self-resonance, and a capacitance range of 0.1 pF to 100 pF in a 0605 case size.

Providing superior stability under the stresses of changing voltage, frequency, and temperature, the SQCA Series MLCC is ideal for use in microwave RF/IF amplifier, low noise amplifier, mixer, oscillator, filter network and MRI system applications.

“The SQ Series MLCC chips feature a porcelain and ceramic dielectric material that provides high reliability, low ESR and up to 40% lower equivalent series resistance than previous versions,” said Larry Eisenberger, AVX product manager. “This makes the SQCA Series ideal for applications with high current carrying capabilities and high quality factors.”

The SQCA Series is RoHS compliant due to 100% tin terminations. Tin/Lead terminations are also available.

Pricing of the SQCA Series typically starts at $0.35 to $1.50 in quantity with a lead time of six weeks.
