AVX expands TLJ series capacitor family
Feb 12, 2007
AVX Corporation, a leading manufacturer of advanced passive components, has extended its TLJ Series tantalum capacitor family to include a miniature T case size.
Known for its high capacitance versus voltage ratio, the TLJ Series is designed to enrich audio performance in miniature applications such as PDAs, mobile phones, MP3 players and digital camera modules.
The TLJ increases the sound quality by producing a clear filtering, piezoless, deep bass performance for low frequency miniature devices.
"The TLJ Series tantalum capacitor is the first on the market to offer this capacitance value in a T case size," said Dan Lane, AVX Tantalum Marketing Manager. "Until now, because of space constraints, designers were limited to coupling capacitors with a range up to 100ÂµF, resulting in limited performance in the low frequency spectrum."
Displaying a maximum height of 1.2mm, the TLJ tantalum capacitor offers a capacitance versus voltage ratio of 220ÂµF 4V in a miniature 1411 footprint. The capacitor also delivers a capacitance tolerance of Â±20% and an operating temperature range between -55Â°C and +125Â°C. Complying with RoHS requirements, the TLJ Series provides 3x reflow, 260Â°C peak temperature lead-free assembly systems.
