AVX Corporation has introduced the new F98-AJ6 series capacitors in a miniature 0603 and 0805 chip sizes with maximum heights of just 1.0mm and 0.80±0.10mm. The new series of capacitors are high-CV resin-molded, surface-mount tantalum chip-type capacitors that were designed especially for automotive electronics applications.
The devices include the industry’s smallest and highest-CV 0603 tantalum capacitor rated at 10μF/10V is qualified to AEC-Q200, hence these new devices are suitable for applications like secondary power line circuits in automotive applications including infotainment and cabin electronics systems, camera modules, and digital millers, as well as select industrial applications.
The capacitors were designed with face down under-tab terminations to achieve high capacitance, high volumetric efficiency, and high PCB assembly densities, this helps in saving board space and to reduce the costs.
The F98-AJ6 Series capacitors are also available in 0603 chips with different capacitance ranges such as 4.7μF/10V, 4.7μF/16V, and 10μF/10V and 0805 chips rated for 10μF/16V at 85°C with a ±20% capacitance tolerance at 120Hz. With an operating temperature range of -55°C to +125°C, the devices were tested to operate fine more than 1000 hours when operated with a 33Ω resistor at 85°C and 85% relative humidity (RH).
