Fused tantalum capacitors from AVX protect against short circuits

25 June 2008

AVX's new TAW series fused tantalum capacitors protect against damaging high DC leakage currents at high currents.

Short circuit failure mode protection is done using an internal fuse connected in series with a capacitor. The fuse is fabricated using thin film technology and is claimed to be dependable, ultra- fast and also the lowest ESR which are available from the fused tantalum capacitors area.

If the fuse exceeds its current limit, the fused capacitor will remove itself from the circuit through creating a high resistance path of above 10MO.

The TAW series tantalum capacitors are lead-free and RoHS-compliant.
