AVX introduces Frameless series of tantalum polymer capacitors for consumer applications

AVX Corporation has introduced a new series of miniature, Frameless, tantalum polymer SMD capacitors. Utilizing proprietary FRAMELESST technology, which is characterised by a lead-frame-less and facedown structure, precise dimensions, and low-stress packaging, the new F38 Series surface-mount capacitors are able to provide high capacitance in miniature M and S cases for high volumetric efficiency.

Featuring conductive polymer cathodes, which can handle high ripple currents, the F38 Series exhibit low ESR, low ESL, and low, flat impedance over a wide frequency range, and are suitable for use in a broad range of consumer applications, including: smartphones, tablet PCs, portable gaming devices, and wireless modules.

“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,” said Allen Mayar, Marketing Manager at AVX.

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