AVX Corp. has expanded its SkyCap® SR Series to include a multilayer ceramic capacitor rated at 10µF/50V in an X7R dielectric (±15% from -55 to +125°C). Designated the SR655C106KAR, the new SkyCap capacitor features a formed lead for stable placement on the printed circuit board, is RoHS compliant, and is well suited for several applications, including telecommunications, power supplies, home security systems, automotive, aerospace, and medical electronics.

"The new SkyCap Series capacitor offers higher capacitance in a robust design, which increases the types of applications that it complements while providing customers with the proven technology and reliability for which this product line is known," said Dan Lane, marketing manager at AVX.

Maximum physical dimensions for the new SkyCap SR Series capacitor are 0.3 x 0.4 x 0.15. Packaged in bulk, the SR65 capacitor is available in 1,000 piece quantities. It is also available in 2,000 piece quantities in tape and reel or ammo packaging. Lead time is stock to 11 weeks.
