AVX Tantalum Asia Corporation has released F38 series based on FRAMELESS™ technology (unique lead-frame less face-down structure) with conductive polymer cathode material. The F38 has higher capacitance and lower ESR, because of packing larger tantalum elements than conventional J-LEAD type and using higher conductive polymer. It has low and flat impedance over the wide frequency range due to low ESL by FRAMELESS™ structure and a low voltage derating rule of only 20% allows usage. 


• High volumetric efficiency, low ESR
• Lower profile 0.9mm max vs. competitors
• Wide temperature range -55/+105C
• Low failure rate 1%/1000hrs defined at 85C and full rated voltage
• RoHS compatible


• Mobile phone – low ESR, safe, high ripple current operation for power lines
• IC recorder – input/output line of DC/DC converter
• DSC – Noise reduction of image sensor
