AVX Corporation has developed a new series of high-voltage, conformally coated, radial leaded MLC capacitors for automotive applications. An extension of its successful Skycap Series, the new X7R dielectric High Voltage AR Series capacitors feature a working voltage range of 1000V to 3000V, are AEC-Q200 qualified, and are readily available in two popular sizes, AR21 and AR30; additional sizes are available upon request.
The new Skycap High Voltage AR Series capacitors possess robust construction and vibration characteristics, considerable thermal resistance, and high quality. Capacitance values for the AR Series range from 470pf to 68,000pf and its tolerance values are ±5%, ±10%, ±20% and +80%-20%. Fully qualified to automotive specification AEC-Q200, the Skycap AR Series is ideal for use in automotive electronics, power supply decoupling and filtering, and a variety of high voltage applications.
