New Engineering Resource from AVX Details Complete Range of Tantalum and Niobium Oxide Capacitors



AVX Corporation, a leading manufacturer of advanced passive components and interconnect solutions, has created a new CD detailing its tantalum and niobium oxide capacitor product offering. Designated the AVX Tantalum Office, the interactive and user friendly CD was developed to help designers easily access information and select the correct capacitor for their applications. The AVX Tantalum Office not only provides a wide range of information to industry professionals, but it can also be used as an educational tool for students and the general public. Featuring a 3D animated character called Mr. OxiCap, users can quickly and easily access product offerings, technical papers and market specifications or requirements, as well as presentations, teardown reports and information on the latest software tools. "Our goal is to provide supportive, educational and useful information while offering an engaging and enjoyable user experience. I am pleased with the creative approach that we took; offering engineering knowledge in a "play & explore" format, combined with a practical approach that provides key information in minimum clicks. I hope users of the Tantalum Office CD benefit from this unique type of electronic product catalogue," said Tomas Zednicek, AVX Tantalum Technical Marketing Manager. The AVX Tantalum Office menu is available in English and Chinese versions and supports both Windows and Mac OSX systems. It is freely available on request. Visitors to PCIM (May 17 - 19, Nuremberg, Germany) will also be able to pick up a copy from the AVX booth in Hall 12, Stand 250.
