According to Barron’s, U.S.spending on consumer electronics will reach $422 billion in 2020, up 4 percent year-over-year. As such, the market represents a significant opportunity for OEMs with interest in developing new smartphones, laptops, voice recorders, and tablets. However, to distinguish themselves, firms need to utilize high-quality components to produce hardware that will impress consumers. For instance,companies would be well served by investing in AVX Corporation’s long-lasting and dependable TCN series of polymer capacitors.

Features

TCN series capacitors are distinguished by the fact that they offer the industry’s highest continuous current/continuous voltage (CC/CV) rating in a low-profile package.Indeed, the surface-mounted tantalum polymer electrodes are available in 10 different case sizes and the ultrathin components have heights that top out at 1 mm to 2 mm.

Therefore,these remarkably small electrodes allow for high PCB assembly density.

Despite their discreet nature, AVX’s TCN series capacitors offer excellent volumetric efficiency thanks to their undertab design. Moreover, the electrodes have a capacitance range of 1.0 μF to 1500 μF and a capacitance tolerance ofplus-minus 20 percent. Besides, the firm designed its components for maximum reliability over their lifetime. Notably, the electrodes can be operated continuously with 20 percent voltage derating.

AVX’s innovative TCN series feature low ESR, a reduced ignition failure mode, and high surge current robustness. The firm’s RoHS compliant electrodes are also free from halogen and lead compounds.

Applications

In their component datasheet, AVX notes the TCN series are ideal for utilization in a host of consumer electronics.With their low-profile and high-frequency capacitance retention, the semiconductors are suitable for use in smartphones, tablets, laptops, and other mobile devices.

The tantalum polymer electrodes also have the capability to serve both the coupling functions for system-on-a-chip (SoC) equipment. Accordingly, as carmakers are utilizing SoCs to power the self-driving platforms in their next-generation vehicles, the TCN series has automotive applications.

It’s also worth noting that the AVX’s CC/CV capacitors can be used to build high-quality power modules. Consequently, the TCN series can be used to make inverters that are commonly used in renewable energy equipment. Hence,OEMs that produce wind turbines, solar panels, and title power plants could benefit from stocking up on the firm’s polymer electrodes.
