MYRTLE BEACH, S.C., 20 April 2010. AVX Corp. in Myrtle Beach, S.C. is introducing the X8L Series multilayer ceramic capacitors that operate in temperatures as high as 150 degrees Celsius for applications in harsh environments.
AVX's X8R Series and X8L Series MLCCs are RoHS-compliant, and have low-loss performance and temperature stability. X8R capacitors demonstrate a capacitance variation over temperature of plus-or-minus 15 percent between -55 and 150 C, while X8L products have a variation of plus-or-minus 15 percent between -55 and 125 C and +15/-40 percent from 125 to 150 C.
The X8L MLCCs are AEC-Q200-qualified making them appropriate for under-the-hood automotive applications. In industrial applications they also can be used as bulk capacitors for temperature sensing modules as well as control units, says Tim Piver, product marketing manager at AVX.
