AVX Corp. is showcasing its extensive portfolio of high frequency, high performance passive components optimized for RF and microwave applications extending across the automotive, consumer, telecommunications, military and aerospace market segments at this year’s International Microwave Symposium (IMS2019), which is taking place next week in Boston, Mass. The conference begins on Sunday, June 2, and concludes on Friday, June 7, and the exhibition runs from Tuesday through Thursday, June 4–6.

Leading engineers from the company’s newest division, AVX RF Solutions, as well as its subsidiary American Technical Ceramics Corp. (ATC) will be onsite at Booths 403 and 404 to introduce attendees to the unique features and benefits of an extended range of both new and proven RF and microwave component solutions. Exhibit highlights include wire-bondable capacitors and resistors, thermal conductors, fuses, filters, diplexers and antennas and other state-of-the-art passive components especially designed and developed to provide high-reliability electrical and mechanical performance optimized for microwave and RF applications.

“IMS is the flagship conference of the IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society and the premier annual event for the global community of RF, microwave and mmWave researchers, technologists and practitioners, so we’re very excited to continue being a part of this industry-leading conference and exhibition,” said AVX Technical Marketing Manager, Larry Eisenberger. “This year, we look forward to introducing attendees to engineers and product solutions from our newest division, AVX RF Solutions—which now manages and is actively working to expand upon our already extensive portfolio of leading-edge microwave and RF components—in addition to engineers and product solutions from our wholly owned subsidiaries ATC and Ethertronics.”

Featured AVX products on display at IMS 2019 include:

  • Its ultraminiature, thin-film transmission line capacitors, which have a novel metal-insulator-metal (MIM) structure, are available in a wide range of capacitance values and are developed using a high-frequency structure simulator (HFSS) to proactively address any electromagnetic challenges and ensure the highest possible RF performance and reliability; its ultra-stable WBR Series thin film wire bondable resistors, which feature ruggedly constructed, low-profile 0202 chip outlines with extremely tight dimensional tolerances, are rated for up to 250 mW DC power, and offer customizable resistive values spanning 1 Ω to 4 MΩ with chip markings to match; and other wire-bondable capacitors and resistors designed to deliver competitive performance in a range of microwave and RF applications.
  • Its Accu-Guard® II SMD thin film fuses, which are constructed on alumina substrates, suitable for a wide range of current and voltage ratings and designed to deliver superior electrical, mechanical, and environmental properties, including a maximum operating temperature of 125°C and guaranteed insulation resistance of more than 20 MΩ. 
  • Its LP Series low-pass 1206 integrated thin film (ITF) SMD filters, which deliver excellent high frequency performance with low insertion loss and extremely sharp attenuation in wireless applications with frequencies spanning 700 MHz to 3.8 GHz; its HF Series MLO® high-pass filters, which combine a low-profile design with AVX’s patented multilayer organic high-density interconnect technology to deliver a wide frequency range with low insertion loss; its BP Series MLO® band-pass filters, which support 18 pass bands spanning 620 to 5930 MHz, have an ultralow profile of 0.556 mm or less, and exhibit excellent frequency response with low insertion loss, high out-of-band rejection, and steep roll-offs for a wide range of wireless applications; and other innovative RF/microwave filters.
  • And a selection of passive antennas from Ethertronics, an AVX Group Company, which regularly establishes benchmarks for speed, range, efficiency and reliability, and offers a wide variety of standard and custom configurations especially designed to ease antenna integration into the rapidly expanding global network of ever-smaller and more powerful connected devices, ranging from mobile phones and Wi-Fi to the IoT.
