MUNICH, Germany (November 9, 2010) — AVX Corporation, a leading manufacturer
of advanced passive components and interconnect solutions, has expanded its
stacked, surface mount multilayer ceramic capacitor (MLCC) product offering
to include the highest capacitance for a given MLCC package. Designated the
RH Series, the range extension features 50V and 100V devices with maximum
capacitance values of 33uF and 22uF respectively. The advanced capacitor
series provides excellent over voltage protection, improves ripple current
capability and VC performance compared to other high capacitance MLCCs,
while offering low ESR.

Featuring a stress relieving lead frame, the RH Series is ideal for any
application requiring board stress relief. Suitable for military and
aerospace applications, the RH Series can be used as an input and output
filter capacitor in high frequency DC-DC converter applications above 10W,
where high volume and low cost is required.

“As a leader in MLCC technology, AVX has developed an advanced solution that
provides at least two times the capacitance in a given package compared to
other SMPS capacitor products,” said Connie Houghtaling, product manager at
AVX. “In addition, the RH Series provides volume and weight reduction
compared to the currently available products.”

The RH Series is available in RoHS and non-RoHS versions, and are sold in
tape-and-reel packaging or waffle trays.

The RH Series has a typical lead time of 12 weeks.
