MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. AVX Corp. has introduced its 0612 low-pass filter array, which provides four equivalent RCR T-Filters with a dual common ground, resulting in the equivalent of eight resistors and four capacitors in one chip. Its primary applications are in signal filtering, EMI suppression and mobile or cordless systems.
The component meets industry requirements for integration, the company said, and offers board area savings that translate into lower pick-and-place costs, as well as quicker assembly times.
The low-pass filter array yields a more-efficient filter, allowing cell phone manufacturers to produce phones with improved signal-to-noise ratios, which translates into phones with lower spurious emissions and better audio characteristics.
The low-pass filter array features the ability to filter four circuits with one package, providing distributed capacitance and shielded resistance. The integrated package also has lower parasitic capacitance compared with discretes.
The initial availability is for designs with capacitance values from 10 to 50 picofarads and resistance values from 10 to 500 ohms. The 0612 array also features a custom Rambus design for the differential clock filter. Other custom configurations are available. Pricing is 42 cents in 100,000-piece quantities.
