Tantalum chip capacitors designed for high-energy applications

Wed, 12/11/2013 - 10:15am


AVX Corporation has released its new TCN PulseCap Series tantalum solid electrolytic chip capacitors, a polymer electrode version of AVX’s industry-favorite, high capacitance, and high energy TLN PulseCap Series. Available in the same single, large, low-profile case size (EIA 7361-20) as its parent series, which enables a capacitance range spanning 220µF to 1500µF, the new TCN PulseCap Series capacitors feature undertab terminations for high volumetric efficiency and high PCB assembly density, in addition to a conductive polymer cathode for reduced ignition and low ESR. TCN PulseCap Series capacitors are ideal for use as energy bank capacitors in solid state drives (eSSDs) and external hard disk drives (eHHDs), as well as for a wide range of wireless transmitters, including smart meters and smartcards. 

Lead-free compatible and RoHS compliant, TCN PulseCap Series capacitors are rated for -55°C to +85°C and 6.3VDC or 16VDC. The series also features ±20% capacitance tolerance and 0.1CV DC leakage current, and is suitable for 3x reflow solder processing at 260°C. Lead time for the series is 8-12 weeks.
