AVX Corp. has expanded is multilayer ceramic capacitor family to include a low noise, high capacitance version for audio frequency applications.
The QM Series reduces noise characteristics while providing high capacitance with a low working voltage, making it well-suited for mobile phone, hard disk drive, and LCD panel driver circuit applications. In addition, the QM Series can also be used as a low pass filter for audio amplifier output or as a coupling capacitor.
The lead free, RoHS compliant QM Series is available in Class II X5R dieletric and case sizes from 0603 to 0805 with voltage ratings ranging from 4V to 16V. The X5R version features a high CV rating, an operating temperature range of -55°C to +85°C and a capacitance variation is within ±15%.
Pricing: Starts at $0.05 to $0.20 in volume.
Availability: Lead time of 15 weeks.
