AVX Corporation has expanded the voltage and capacitance range of its MIL-PRF-49470-qualified SMPS Series stacked MLC capacitors by adding a 25V capacitor to the original 50-500V offering. The new 25V SMPS capacitor currently features standard MIL-PRF-49470 Level “B” reliability; however, a parallel component with T-Level reliability for space applications is under qualification.
Designed for high-current, high-power and high-temperature applications, AVX’s MIL-PRF-49470 SMPS capacitors exhibit very low ESR and ESL and can withstand temperatures ranging from -55°C to +125°C. Primarily used in the input/output filters of high-power and high-voltage power supplies, as well as in bus filters and DC snubbers for high-power inverters, the SMPS Series is also ideal for DC/DC converters, general and switched-mode power supplies, aerospace instrumentation panels, and a variety of hybrid power and military applications.
AVX’s SMPS Series capacitors are available in six case sizes and with a variety of through-hole and surface-mount lead options.
