Myrtle Beach, S.C. AVX Corp. says it has developed the industry's first automotive-grade, conformally-coated ceramic radial leaded capacitor. The AR series consists of NPO, X7R, and now X8R dielectrics. The addition of the X8R dielectric enables the extended temperature range up to 150°C, making the parts suitable for a variety of automotive and industrial applications including under-the-hood, in-cabin, and downhole.
Operational in standard temperatures up to 125°C and extended temperatures up to 150°C, the AR series capacitors are available up to 200 Vdc and with capacitance values ranging from 1 pf to 1 uF. The capacitors come in 16 different case sizes.
The AR series is available in straight or formed lead configurations, with lead spacing options ranging from .100 to .375 inches. Packaging options include bulk, tape and reel, and ammo package.
The AR series, with its AEC-Q200 qualification, is aimed at designers requiring a Production Part Approval Process (PPAP) for new qualifications. All the necessary PPAP data is complete, and is available upon request, said AVX.
