MLCCs Present Polymer Terminals
Withstanding higher levels of mechanical stress, Vishay Intertechnology’s VJ0805, VJ1206, VJ1210, VJ1808 and VJ1812 HVArc Guard SMT X7R MLCCs include optional polymer terminals. The devices have optimization in applications including buck and boost DC/DC converters, voltage multipliers for flyback converters, and lighting ballast circuits. The capacitors exhibit surface arc-over prevention at high voltages, capacitances from 100 pF to 0.270 µF and a voltage range from 250 VDC to 1,000 VDC. The components eliminate the need for conformal coating, and can replace wire-leaded through-hole capacitors. Pricing starts at $0.057.
