AVX’s TCM series multianode capacitors offer a solution for high-power requirements in combination with a safer non-ignition failure mode. Low ESR applications include telecommunications, wireless data transfer applications, and high-performance power applications such as power processors and integrated circuits. Due to a better thermal dissipation of multiple anodes compared to single anodes, TCM series capacitors can be loaded to higher continuous current and are more robust against current surges.
