AVX Corp. says it has expanded its stacked,
surface mount multilayer ceramic capacitor (MLCC) product offering to include
the highest capacitance for a given MLCC package. Designated the RH Series, the
range extension features 50 and 100V devices with maximum capacitance values of
33 and 22 uF respectively. The capacitor series provides over voltage
protection, improves ripple current capability and VC performance, while
offering low ESR.
stress relieving lead frame, the RH Series is useful for applications requiring
board stress relief.† Suitable for
military and aerospace applications, the RH Series can be used as an input and
output filter capacitor in high frequency dc-dc converter applications above
10W, where high volume and low cost is required.
Series is available in RoHS and non-RoHS versions, and are sold in
tape-and-reel packaging or waffle trays.
NASA and Boeing developed a huge, carbon composite cryogenic fuel tank for deep space missions, and started testing it last month. The 18-ft cryotank will enable heavy-lift launch vehicles to send both humans and robots into deep space.
