Featuring a capacitance range of 1.5µF to 390µF and rated for -55°C to +125°C, AVX's B- and T-Level BX characteristic SMPS capacitors are ideal for I/O filtering and bulk storage in a wide range of applications, including: military defense and weapons systems; space and satellite communications; telecom switching, networking, and base stations; DC/DC power converters; high voltage medical electronics and industrial equipment; down hole drilling and oil exploration equipment; and alternative and hybrid energy vehicles.
"AVX has the most extensive QPL listing of standard and high-reliability SMPS capacitors in both encapsulated and unencapsulated styles and in a broad range of voltage and temperature characteristics, making them ideal for use in a wide variety of military, space, and other harsh environment applications," said
SpiCalci 8.0 SPICE modeling software, which helps design engineers validate circuits before they are built by allowing them to simulate frequency performance plots and other data for specific AVX components, is available for the full offering of BX characteristic SMPS capacitors approved on the MIL-PRF-49470 QPL.
