AVX has demonstrated and manufactured 0201 tantalum capacitors
with dimensions as small as 0.
For example, in the latest generation of HRC6000 tantalum capacitors
using AVX's patented Q-Process (www.
An Overview of Failure Analysis of Tantalum Capacitors
One leading manufacturer has even released tantalum capacitors
available in a hermetically sealed ceramic case, which provides resistance to dust, moisture, radiation, and temperatures up to 230[degrees]C.
are not vulnerable to this problem.
By bringing all activities under control, from the mine through production of high-quality powder, to final assembly and screening of tantalum capacitors
, this approach provides the highest possible assurances of ethical sourcing and product quality.
The 200[degrees]C life tests confirmed virtually no degradation of the hermetically sealed SMD tantalum capacitors
at operating temperatures of up to 200[degrees]C, as well as the technology's potential for extended lifetimes of up to 10,000 hours.
