Vishay – Rutronik presents new AEC-Q200-Qualified Ceramic Disc Safety Capacitors
The new components offer a capacitance range from 10pF to 4700pf with tolerances down to ±10% over a temperature range of -55° to +125°C. With their superior robustness, they provide a particularly high level of quality and reliability. Incorporating the very latest in ceramic material, capacitor design, and production technologies, the AY2 series withstands more than 2000 temperature cycles without a single failure.
The devices consist of a silver-plated ceramic disc with tinned copper connection leads offering 0.6mm diameters. AY2 capacitors are available with straight leads with spacing of 5mm, 7.5mm, and 10mm. RoHS-compliant and halogen-free, their encapsulation is made of flame resistant epoxy resin in accordance with UL 94 V-0.
Featuring U2J, Y5S, and Y5U ceramic dielectrics, the AY2 series is optimized for on-board chargers and battery management in electric cars and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV), in addition to high-reliability industrial applications.
