AVX Paignton is the Divisional Headquarters for the Tantalum
division which has manufacturing locations in Paignton in the
UK, Biddeford in Maine, USA, Juarez in Mexico, Lanskroun
in the Czech Republic and El Salvador.
The Division takes its name from the raw material used to
make its main products, Tantalum Capacitors. Tantalum is
an element extracted from ores found alongside tin and
niobium deposits; the major sources of supply are Canada,
Brazil and Australasia.
So for high volume tantalum capacitors with leading edge
technology call us first - AVX your global partner.
The amount of capacitance possible in a tantalum capacitor
is directly related to the type of tantalum powder used to
manufacture the anode.
The graph following shows how the (capacitance) x (voltage)
per gram (CV/g) has steadily increased over time, thus allow-
ing the production of larger and larger capacitances with the
same physical volume. CV/g is the measure used to define
the volumetric efficiency of a powder, a high CV/g means a
higher capacitance from the same volume.
These improvements in the powder have been achieved
through close development with the material suppliers.
AVX Tantalum is committed to driving the available technology
forwards as is clearly identified by the new TACmicrochip
technology and the standard codes under development.

In line with our desire to become the number one supplier in
the world for passive and interconnection components, AVX
is constantly looking forward and innovating.
It is not good enough to market the best products; the
customer must have access to a service system which suits

partnerships with only the premier division of distributors aids
the smaller user.
Helping to market the breadth and depth of our electronic
component line card and support our customers are a
dedicated team of commercial sales people, applications
engineers and product marketing managers. Their qualifica-
tions are hopefully always appropriate to your commercial
need, but as higher levels of technical expertise are required,
access directly to the appropriate department is seamless
Total quality starts and finishes with our customer service,
and where cost and quality are perceived as given quantities
the AVX service invariably has us selected as the preferred
Facilities are equipped with instant worldwide computer and
telecommunication links connected to every sales and pro-
duction site worldwide. That ensures that our customers
