AVX Corp. has expanded its porcelain and ceramic dielectric multilayer capacitor (MLC) chip product offering to include non-magnetic termination versions.
Designated the SQ Series, the RF capacitors are aimed at medical devices such as MRI coils. According to AVX, the SQ Series offers low ESR, high Q, high current and high self-resonance frequency values.
"The SQ Series capacitors are constructed using a fine-grained porcelain dielectric with palladium internal electrodes. It is this combination of high density and high purity dielectric materials that enables the SQ Series to keep moisture out. This advanced design allows for as much as 40 percent lower equivalent series resistance than other MLC versions," said Larry Eisenberger, senior field applications engineer at AVX, in a statement.
