The SMPS capacitors are designed for high current, high-power and high-temperature applications. These capacitors have very low ESR (Equivalent Series Resistance) and ESL (Equivalent Series Inductance). SMPS Series capacitors offer design and component engineers a proven technology specifically designed for programs requiring high reliability performance in harsh environments.
MIL-PRF-49470 SMPS Series capacitors are primarily used in input/output filters of high-power and high-voltage power supplies as well as in bus filters and DC snubbers for high power inverters and other high-current applications. These capacitors are available with through-hole and surface mount leads. The operating temperature is -55°C to +125°C.
The MIL-PRF-49470 capacitors are preferred over the DSCC drawing 87106 capacitors. MIL-PRF-49470 specification was created to produce a robust replacement for DSCC 87106. MIL-PRF-49470 offers two product levels. Level “B” is the standard reliability. Level “T” is the high reliability suitable for space application. AVX is qualified to supply MIL-PRF-49470/1 parts. These are unencapsulated ceramic dielectric, switch mode power supply capacitors.
AVX is also qualified to supply MIL-PRF- 49470/2 parts. These are encapsulated ceramic dielectric, switch mode power supply capacitors.
