AVX Corporation has created a new CD detailing its tantalum and niobium oxide capacitors which will help designers access information more easily and select the correct capacitor for their applications. Featuring a 3D animated character called Mr OxiCap, users can quickly and easily find what they are searching for and have fun at the same time.
The interactive and user friendly CD, called The AVX Tantalum Office, has been issued by AVX Corporation to bring wide range of information not only to industry professionals but also to be used as an educational tool by students and the general public.
The CD contains product offerings, technical papers and market specifications or requirements, as well as presentations, teardown reports and information on the latest software tools.
Designed as a walkthrough guide, Mr. OxiCap welcomes users in a reception area and takes them though to a virtual conference room, where there's an explanation about what a tantalum capacitor is and information about its structure and how it is manufactured. In the laboratory area, users are encouraged to explore tantalum uses and applications. Finally, in the library, there's more information about current and future product offerings from AVX.
The AVX Tantalum Office menu is available in English and Chinese versions and supports both Windows and Mac OSX systems. It is freely available on request.
