[Satellite TODAY 06-24-11] Passive components and interconnect solutions developer AVX Corp. has expanded its HQ-series of surface-mount RF power capacitors to include P90 dielectric versions for high-power and high-frequency applications, the company announced June 23.
The product line expansion is scheduled for the 2011 third quarter. The company said the new features of the HQ series include ultra-low equivalent series resistance (ESR) and dissipation factor at high frequencies.
“Part of AVX’s Hi-Q family of RF capacitors, the HQ Series devices are designed to handle high-power and high-voltage levels for RF applications. Further, the Hi-Q capacitor family is specifically designed to run cooler at high RF current levels, providing superior long-term reliability,” AVX Product Manager Larry Eisenberger said in a statement.
