AVX Accu-P MP Series of thin film chip capacitors meet the performance specifications for implantable medical devices, delivering extremely tight capacitive tolerances, exceptionally repeatable performance and remarkably low ESR and high Q at high frequencies — including VHF, UHF, and RF bands. Devices exhibit high stability with respect to temperature, time, frequency and voltage variation. Devices are currently available in three standard case sizes (0201, 0402, and 0603), five rated voltages (10V, 16V, 25V, 50V, and 100V), two dielectric temperature coefficients (0±30ppm/°C and 0±60ppm/°C), and with capacitive tolerances spanning ±0.01pF to ±5%. Rated for use in operating temperatures spanning -55°C to +125°C, the series is also available with tin/lead (Sn/Pb) terminations or RoHS compliant and lead-free compatible 100% tin terminations. http://www.avx.com15OTD244_MED
