AVX Claims the Industry’s Lowest-Profile 3216 Tantalum Capacitor

April 9, 2019 Alix Paultre

AVX extended its TACmicrochip Series with the lowest-profile 3216-footprint tantalum capacitor currently available on the market. Measuring 0.5mm high, the first “I” case capacitor (EIA Metric 3216-05) is rated for 10μF and 6.3V. The full line of TACmicrochip capacitors is currently available in 11 case sizes with footprints spanning 1005 to 3528, heights ranging from 0.5–1.5mm, capacitance values spanning 0.10–150μF, and voltage ratings spanning 2–25V.

The new 3216-05 “I” case TACmicrochip capacitors also offer an inherent immunity to piezoelectric noise, and offer higher stability, reliability, and temperature performance than comparable MLCCs. Capable of being embedded in 0.8mm-thick PCBs, TACmicrochip capacitors can serve a variety of medical applications. Rated for use in temperatures spanning -55°C to +125°C, the series is generally supplied with tin over nickel terminations, with gold over nickel options also available.
