AVX Corporation has doubled the capacitance of its 0603 Multilayer Organic Capacitor (MLOC) Series, extending the highest-rated capacitance value from 2.5pF to 5.1pF. Intended for applications including RF power amplifiers, low noise amplifiers, filter networks, and instrumentation, the 0603 MLO capacitors exhibit low ESR, high SRF, and high Q and are capable of supporting frequencies well above 5 GHz.
Expansion matched to PCBs for improved reliability, the series also exhibits low dielectric absorption (0.0015%) and capacitance tolerances as tight as ±0.02pF.
“Fabricated on large area substrates and state-of-the-art laser direct imaging, our 0603 MLO RF capacitors provide customers with improved cost benefits and tolerance control, as well as exhibit excellent performance,” said Larry Eisenberger, senior marketing application engineer at AVX.
Rated for -55°C to +125°C and for 50V, 250V, and 500V, AVX’s 0603 MLO RF capacitor series utilizes well-established, low-loss organic polymer materials. Every production lot is 100% evaluated for capacitance and proof voltage at 2.5 UR and reliability data has been verified via JEDEC, Mil Spec, and IPC testing. Lead-free compatible and RoHS compliant, the series is packaged on 7” unmarked reels each containing 3,000 pieces.
