A manufacturer of passive components has expanded its offering of multilayer ceramic capacitors to provide high-capacitance values at temperatures up to 150ºC. Designated the X8L Series, the high temperature MLCC (Multilayer Ceramic Capacitors) range has an elevated capacitance performance at temperatures to accommodate applications in harsh environments.
“Like the X8R Series, the new, high capacitance X8L MLCCs are AEC-Q200-qualified making them for automotive applications including under the hood systems. In the industrial market, they can also be used as bulk capacitors for temperature sensing modules as well as control units,” said AVX product marketing manager Tim Piver.
Both series are RoHS-compliant and feature low-loss performance and temperature stability. X8R capacitors show a capacitance variation of ±15% between -55 to 150ºC, while X8L products have a variation of ±15% from -55 to 125ºC and 15/-40% from +125 to +150ºC. Absolute capacitance varies with temperature.
Optional terminations include a patented Flexiterm, which ensures component reliability by preventing damage caused by thermal cycling and mechanical flexing. Conductive epoxy terminations for hybrid applications are available.
