The F98 Series resin-moulded, undertab termination style tantalum chip capacitors from AVX have been extended with the addition of a CV 0603 tantalum capacitor rated at 100μF/6.3V. The new F98 Series 0603 capacitor halves the footprint of the 0805 component and is free from the DC capacitance/voltage dependency that MLCCs experience.
It also features SMD facedown, undertab terminations, which enable high volumetric efficiency, low ESL, and high PCB assembly density. F98 Series capacitors are well suited for use in the power line circuits of a range of mobile and wearable electronics, including smartphones, wireless modules, hearing aids, fitness trackers and smartwatches.
“Our high CV F98 Series offers a broad selection of miniature, facedown capacitors with ultra-low profiles and the highest available capacitance to provide ideal solutions for mobile and wearable technologies with stringent size, price, and performance requirements,” said Allen Mayar, Product Marketing Manager, AVX.
AVX’s F98 Series high CV, resin-molded chip capacitors are currently available in three case sizes (0603, 0805, and 0402) with ultra-low maximum profiles of 0.90 and 0.60mm (0.80mm ±0.10mm and 0.55 ±0.05mm), rated voltages spanning 4V to 25V, and capacitance values spanning 1.0μF to 220μF with a ±20% tolerance at 120Hz. Lead-free compatible and RoHS compliant per the RoHS2 directive 2011/65/EU, F98 Series capacitors are rated at 85°C and designed for use in operating temperatures spanning -55°C to 125°C. Lead time for the series is eight to ten weeks.
