August 27, 2020 | 10:00 AM EDT
AVX Corporation is a leading supplier of advanced electronic components and interconnect, sensing, control and antenna solutions, offering the world’s broadest selection of passive components and connectors. AVX develops many products qualified to COTS+, ESCC, SRC, MIL and DSCC / DLA drawings in addition to custom screening and test service capabilities.

Join us as John Marshall presents an overview of AVX’s High Reliability Ceramic Capacitor offering.

Topics to be covered include:

  • The traditional PME (Pd/Ag electrode) technology products and the more recent BME (Ni electrode) technology products. Primary emphasis will be on the SMD BME range of parts, and we will share some details about the product /process flow which will allow greater understanding of cycle times and lead times.
  • The present excess stock and WIP for the M32535, NASA G311P838, and ESCC3009041 products will be discussed and how this can be utilized to reduce lead times.
  • Further information will be given on customers, design ins, applications, etc.
  • 2020/2021 plan (timelines and qualification status) for the new M32535 IDC range of parts.
