AVX Expands MLCC Family
Ceramic chips with gold-plated terminations.
Myrtle Beach, SC — AVX Corporation has expanded its extensive family of multilayer ceramic chips (MLCCs) to include gold-plated terminations.
Designated the Au Series, the RoHS-compliant MLCC eliminates the use of tin and lead and subsequent tin whiskering events on the PCB. Available for most standard MLCC values, the company offers a range of gold thicknesses for flash terminations (soldering applications) from 1.9 to 7.87µin. (0.04826 to 0.19989µm) while the gold Std termination thicknesses start at 100µin. (2.54µm) minimum (epoxy / wire bonding applications).
According to the company, whisker growth is caused by deposit stress, such as heat, to pure tin-plated components. The gold-plated termination series eliminates a printed circuit board's
susceptibility to tin whiskering, which can significantly affect the performance and reliability of a system. Other alternate terminations offered are SnPb, PdAg, Flexiterm, and Flexisafe.
