New Tantalum Capacitors F9H Series Release By AVX For Automotive Applications

Tantalum Capacitors F9H Series

AVX Corporation, a leading manufacturer and supplier of advanced electronic components and interconnect, sensor, control, and antenna solutions launched a new F9H series tantalum capacitors of miniature, surface-mount, J-lead that operates in up to a category temperature of 150°C, & offers the industry’s highest CV/cc in a high-temperature 1206 tantalum capacitor: a 10μF/16V rating that delivers 50% more capacitance than the now next-highest CV/cc 1206 tantalum capacitor, a 6.8μF/16V part.

The new F9H Series meets AEC-Q200 requirements, and is compliant with RoHS2 directive 2011/65/EU. F9H Series capacitors are also lead-free compatible and RoHS compliant. Lead-time for the series is currently 8-10 weeks. Also capacitors are high reliability performance than standard automotive-grade capacitors, with a failure rate of just 0.5% after 1,000 hours at 105°C and rated voltage with 0.1Ω/V series impedance and a 60% confidence level.

The F9H Series is currently offered with four ratings: 1206 10μF/16V, 1206 15μF/10V, 1210 22μF/16V, and 2312 47μF/16V with an operating temperature of +105°C at rated voltage and a maximum category temperature of 150°C at 50% of rated voltage. The capacitors are suited for the secondary power lines of automotive electronics applications including: headlamps, brakes, engine and transmission control units, integrated starter generators, as well as in industrial applications.

Also capacitors have a conventional MnO2 cathode, which is characterized by low leakage current, do not exhibit capacitance loss with applied voltage (voltage coefficient) or capacitance loss over time, as respectively seen in Class II MLCCs and aluminum electrolytic capacitors.
