AVX Adds Several New High CV Devices to its TWA Series COTS Plus Wet Electrolytic Tantalum Capacitors

FOUNTAIN INN, S.C., March 16, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AVX Corporation, a leading manufacturer of passive components and interconnect solutions, has added new high voltage components to its high reliability TWA Series COTS Plus axial leaded, wet electrolytic tantalum capacitors. Featuring a high capacitance cathode system that enables high CV levels in DSCC-compatible case sizes and new ratings as high as 4700µF/25V, 3000µF/50V, 2200µF/60V, 1000µF/75V, and 750µF/100V, TWA Series capacitors are ideal for use in high-reliability defense, avionics, radar, and power supply applications.

"The new high CV ratings of the TWA Series COTS Plus wet electrolytic tantalum capacitors make them well suited for use in a wide variety of harsh environment, high reliability applications, and we're still actively expanding the series," said Chris Reynolds, technical marketing manager at AVX Tantalum Products. "With 17 new codes currently under development and five available as samples, we can continue to expand the number and type of applications that can benefit from the series' reputable performance."

TWA Series COTS Plus wet electrolytic tantalum capacitors are available with seven voltage ratings (25V, 30V, 50V, 60V, 75V, 100V, and 125V), 26 capacitance values spanning 10µF to 5,600µF, four DSCC-compatible case sizes (T1–T4), two capacitance tolerances (±10% and ±20%), and two termination finishes (Sn/Pb 60/40 and lead-free compatible matte tin). The RoHS compliant tantalum capacitors are also available both with and without an insulating sleeve, and with three levels of qualification: Extended Range, COTS Plus, and Group A level testing. TWA Series capacitors are shipped in a tray pack, and standard lead time for the series is 8–10 weeks. Lead times for components with custom capacitance and voltage packages, which are both possible and welcomed, will vary.
