Equalisers combine rugged ultraminiature resistive and capacitive elements

16-02-2021 | AVX | Passives

AVX Corporation offers the GEQ Series RC equalisers. These rugged, ultraminiature (EIA 0402, 1005 metric) equalisers consolidate high-performance TaN resistive elements and SiON capacitive elements with its proprietary, automotive-qualified, glass-sandwich FLEXITERM surface-mount technology, which offers an extra measure of protection against flexure damage through installation. The series of equalisers are also produced with 100% laser trimming to obtain tight tolerances and provide a low 0.5mm profile, a 125mW power rating, resistance values spanning 10-50Ohm, and capacitance values covering 1-50pF.


Ideal for a broad range of operating temperatures (-55C to +125C) and compliant with RoHS, they are excellent for applications across the optoelectronic, telecommunications, broadband, defence, space, test, and instrumentation markets. They include optical transceiver modules, broadband receivers, transmission, and receiver optical subassemblies (TOSA and ROSA).


“Our ultraminiature GEQ Series equalisers deliver reliable, tight-tolerance performance in a wide range of cross-market, small-form-factor electronics,” said Larry Eisenberger, principal technical marketing engineer at AVX.


The series’ ultraminiature 0402 case sizes measure 1mm x 0.5mm x 0.5mm (L x W x H) ±0.1mm, and their FLEXITERM (Ag/epoxy), NiSn-plated terminations are 0.25mm ±0.15mm wide. Further EIA case sizes and RC combinations are available upon request.
