Myrtle Beach, S.C. AVX Corp. has developed a family of fused tantalum capacitors that feature an internal fuse to protect against short circuits and high
DC leakage currents. With an ultra-fast response time, the TAW series tantalum capacitors will remove itself from the circuit and into 'fail safe mode' when the internal fuse exceeds the current limit.
The TAW fused tantalum capacitor, manufactured using thin-film technology, provides high capacitance values up to 10 Mohms, and low equivalent series resistance (ESR) for high-reliability applications including aerospace, automotive, servers and telecommunications infrastructure products.
Unlike conventional devices that incorporate an embedded lead wire fuse, the TAW tantalum capacitor series is lead-free and RoHS compliant.
Pricing: Starts at $0.65 in quantities of 10,000.
Availability: From stock to 10 weeks.
