“Equipped with copper instead of precious metal electrodes, the new CU Series capacitors provide ultra low ESR and high Q, both of which are critical in communications applications,” said Larry Eisenberger, product manager at AVX.
AVX’s new CU Series chip capacitors are composed of C0G (NP0) temperature-compensating EIA Class I ceramic materials, one of the most stable dielectrics available, and feature lead-free, nickel and tin-plated terminations. The temperature coefficient of capacitance for the series is 0±30ppm/°C from -55° to +125°C. Capacitance value and working voltage vary by case size. The 01005 CU Series capacitors have a capacitance value range of 0.5 – 6.2pF and a working voltage of 16VDC, and the 0201 capacitors have a capacitance value of 0.5 – 22pF and a working voltage of 25VDC.
