GREENVILLE, S.C., March 8, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AVX Corporation, a leading manufacturer of advanced passive components and interconnect solutions, has introduced a new series of microwave MLCCs with near-pure silver (Ag) electrodes, which both enhance performance and mitigate cost. Exhibiting higher conductivity than competing non-precious metal RF capacitors, AVX's new UQ Series MLCCs feature ultra-low ESR, high Q, high self-resonance, and a capacitance range spanning 0.1pF to 1000pF. Ideal applications for the UQ Series include RF power amplifiers, low noise amplifiers, filter networks, and MRI systems.
"By utilizing near-pure silver electrodes on the new UQ Series capacitors, AVX was able to provide higher conductivity than competitive non-precious metal technologies while remaining highly competitive in terms of cost," said Larry Eisenberger, product manager at AVX.
Lead-free and RoHS compliant, AVX's high-performance UQ Series MLC RF capacitors are available in seven voltages, ranging from 50-500V, and in eight capacitance tolerances, ranging from ±0.1pf to ±20%. Competitively priced with other non-precious metal RF capacitors, the series is also available in six case sizes: 0605, 1210, 0709, 0402, 0603, and 0805, and with three termination styles: nickel barrier Sn/Pb (60/40), 100% tin, and non-magnetic barrier/tin.
AVX's UQ Series is rated for use in temperatures ranging from -55°C to +125°C. The series also either meets or exceeds the requirements of EIA-198, MIL-PRF-55681, and MIL-PRF-123.
