From AVX Press
AVX Corporation, a leading manufacturer of advanced passive components and interconnect solutions, has expanded its TPM Series of multi-anode mirror design tantalum capacitors that offer improved robustness and feature low ESR – including the industry’s leading performance device.
AVX has developed the first mirror design multi-anode parts rated at 35V. The TPM Series D 22µF/35V is suitable for use in circuits with high current and voltage spikes where the profile is limited to just 3mm. It is ideal for automotive battery applications running on 12/14V with low impedance, where it offers enhanced robustness and lower ESR than single anode capacitors. In addition, since the D and E case sizes use an identical footprint, the pad design does not need to be changed if the D-case part can be used to replace the larger capacitor. For higher operating voltages the TPM D 10µF/50V with an ESR of 140mΩ is also available.
All parts meet the requirements of AEC-Q200, which is a key requirement for automotive designs in Europe.
