AVX Corp. will launch two new capacitor series, showcase its portfolio of advanced passive solutions (including several new and significant series extensions), and contribute to the technical conference program at this year's Applied Power Electronics Conference and Exposition (APEC 2016) in Long Beach, Calif., running from March 20-24.

New AVX products slated for introduction include a series of next-generation, medical-grade tantalum capacitors that the company claims require much less voltage derating than any competitive offering. In addition, they deliver exceptionally low DCL values and high reliability in a variety of medical implantable and life support devices. Also debuting is a series of high-voltage, medium-power film capacitors that deliver intrinsically safe, high reliability, and long-lifetime performance in ac-dc power converters, renewable energy inverters, rolling stock, and oil-drilling applications.

Exhibiting at Booth 1536, AVX will showcase several significant series extensions scheduled for market introduction in the weeks leading up to and immediately following the globally recognized event. These include new high CV TWA Series COTS+ wet tantalum capacitors for high-reliability defense, avionics, radar, and power-supply applications; high CV TWA-Y Series wet tantalum capacitors for avionics, industrial, and down-hole applications; and F98 Series high CV tantalum capacitors for mobile and wearable electronics.
