AVX Corporation (Greenville, SC) introduced a new series of high temperature MLCCs rated for 250°C. Designed to accommodate the rapidly emerging military and commercial market demands for capacitors capable of high-reliability, long lifetime performance at operating temperatures in excess of the current 125°C requirement, the new AT Series capacitors exhibit high current handling capabilities, high volumetric efficiency, high insulation resistance, and extremely low ESR and ESL. Available in a wide range of sizes, values, and voltages all rated at 250°C, in addition to two dielectrics and multiple termination options, AT Series capacitors provide exceptional performance in the most demanding automotive, avionics, aerospace, and energy applications. Rated to 16V and 25V at 250°C and for operating temperatures spanning -55°C to +250°C, AVX’s new high temperature AT Series MLCCs are available in both C0G (Class I) and VHT (Class II) dielectrics. The series includes:
- Capacitance values spanning 2200 pF to 1 µF with capacitance tolerances down to ±5%; ±10%, and ±20% are also available.
- Two termination options (Pd/Ag & RoHS-compliant 100% Sn plated).
- Case sizes ranging from 1206 to 2225.
