TCN Series Polymer Low Profile Series

AVX Corporation has expanded its wide range of SMD tantalum polymer capacitors to deliver industry's highest CV rating in a low profile package. Ideal for small power modules and handheld devices, the TCN series tantalum polymer capacitors use an 'under-tab' design to maximize volumetric efficiency. This enables these devices to provide a 150 μF/6.3 V rating in T and L case sizes measuring only 3.5 mm x 2.8 mm with a profile of only 1.2 mm and 1.0 mm respectively. In addition, the TCN series polymer capacitors are suitable for continuous operation with just 20 percent voltage derating due to their reduced ignition failure mode and surge current robustness.

  • Maximum volumetric efficiency
  • Reduced ignition failure mode
  • High-frequency capacitance retention
  • Low ESR
  • 20% derating
  • Very low profile (1 or 1.2 mm)
  • High PCB assembly density
  • May be operated up to 80% of rated voltage
