AVX Unveil Frameless Tantalum Polymer Capacitors For Consumer Devices

The F38 Series of miniature, tantalum polymer SMD capacitors has been announced by AVX. The new capacitors utilise proprietary FRAMELESS technology, which is characterized by a unique lead-frame-less and facedown structure, low-stress packaging, and precise dimensions. The F38 Series are ideal for a broad range of consumer applications, including: tablet PCs, smartphones, wireless modules, and portable gaming devices.

F38 Series ##IMAGE_1_R##capacitors exhibit low ESR, low ESL, and low, flat impedance over a wide frequency range, and feature conductive polymer cathodes, which can handle high ripple currents. The new surface-mount capacitors provide high capacitance in miniature M and S cases for high volumetric efficiency.

AVX’s new F38 Series tantalum polymer capacitors are RoHS-compliant, halogen free, and rated for use in temperatures ranging from -55ºC to +105ºC. The new capacitors are vailable in two case sizes: M (1.6mm x 0.85mm x 0.8mm) and S (2.0mm x 1.25mm x 0.8mm).

M-case F38 Series capacitors are available rated for 10V and 2.2µF or 10V and 4.7µF; however, the following ratings are in development and slated for introduction later this year: 6.3V and 22µF, 6.3V and 47µF, and10V and 10µF.

S-case F38 Series capacitors are currently available rated for 6.3V and 47µF. Two additional S-case ratings, 4V and 100µF and 10V and 22µF, are also in development and slated for introduction later this year.

Allen Mayar, Marketing Manager at AVX, commented: “impervious to capacitance variations resulting from fluctuations in temperature or voltage, the new F38 Series tantalum polymer capacitors provide design engineers with a high-reliability alternative to the noise-emitting MLCCs in mobile phone and other handheld consumer device applications.”
