AVX Corp. in Myrtle Beach, S.C., is introducing extreme-high-temperature stacked ceramic capacitors for applications in harsh and rugged operating environments. The SMX and CHX series stacked ceramic capacitors are for extreme temperature transitions and high transient voltage applications, such as military, engine control, aerospace, avionics, down-hole oil drilling, undersea explorations, and hybrid vehicles. “The ceramic capacitors feature a space-saving design and are compatible with switch-mode power supplies that distribute high currents and operate within a wide voltage range and temperature range,” says Scott Harris, AVX marketing manager. The ceramic capacitors operate in temperatures as hot as 200 degrees Celsius. The SMX series has a maximum capacitance of 340 microfarads at 25 volts and a maximum voltage rating of 500 volts.
