AVX Corp.: Capacitor Selection Software

SpiCalci software guides designers in the selection of the proper switch mode power supply (SMPS) capacitor to match application requirements.

AVX Corp. has enhanced its free SpiCalci software, which guides designers in the selection of the proper switch mode power supply (SMPS) capacitor to match application requirements. The upgraded SpiCalci 5.0 SMPS software incorporates AVX's newest capacitor technologies, including TurboCap, the MH series and the expanded MIL PRF 49470 product offering. In addition, the software allows users to select critical parameters; build a part number; and view charts such as ESR, impedance vs. frequency, temperature change vs. applied current, and maximum current over frequency.

AVX's SMPS capacitors are suited for filtering capacitors on the input and output of power supplies or as snubber capacitors. The SpiCalci 5.0 software ensures that customers select the appropriate capacitor and performance characteristics for their application.
