Miniature ESD-Safe(TM) Capacitor Series is Ideal for Automotive and Other High Density Electronic Applications

GREENVILLE, S.C. - AVX Corporation, a leading manufacturer of advanced passive components and interconnect solutions, has developed a new series of enhanced MLC capacitors specifically designed for general ESD protection. Available in standard 0603, 0805, and 1206 case sizes, the new ESD-Safe(TM) MLC Chips' small footprint makes them ideal for high density electronic devices like automotive modules, which often use ESD caps on nearly every pin.

"The new ESD-Safe(TM) Series capacitors were made to withstand ESD strikes without failure, providing our automotive engineering partners with unparalleled performance," said Ron Demcko, AVX Fellow.

ESD-Safe(TM) X7R Series capacitors are designed to protect general-purpose I/O gates from ESD damage during the connector to wiring harness mating operation. The AECQ200-qualified chips are available in 25, 50, and 100V, feature a +/-15% capacitance variation, and are rated for use in temperatures ranging from -55°C to 125°C. The series is also available with FLEXITERM® soft terminations, which allow for more than twice as much board flexure as standard terminations and protect the electrical integrity from external forces.

Lead time for the ESD-Safe(TM) MLC Chip series is 10 weeks.
