FOUNTAIN INN, SC, Dec 15, 2016 – AVX Corp., a leading manufacturer and supplier of passive components and interconnect solutions, announces wide-ranging additions to its 3D model design tool for polymer, tantalum, and niobium oxide capacitors. Now featuring a broad range of 3D CAD drawings for conformal, hermetic, and wet tantalum capacitors, as well as new SMD footprints and profiles, the newly expanded 3D Model design library allows engineers to visually simulate and preemptively test PCB layout and ensure that populated PCBs will fit within planned enclosures. These capabilities effectively eliminate the need for 2D mockups and significantly reduce the risk of board redesign prior to fabrication, both of which enable reduced design cycle durations and valuable cost savings.
