Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. has introduced a new low profile, AEC-Q200 qualified DC-Link metallized polypropylene film capacitor that withstand temperature humidity bias (THB) testing of 60°C / 93 % relative humidity for 56 days at rated voltage and is designed to meet the demands of high humidity automotive applications. The new MKP1848Se DC-Link with low profile design and high resistance to humidity is ideal for space-constrained automotive applications, including HVAC systems, on-board, and inductive battery charging systems, air conditioning compressors, and motor drives for electric (EV) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV).


This capacitor offers rated capacitance from 1 µF to 75 µF and low ESR down to 3 mΩ. The RoHS-compliant device provides high ripple current capabilities up to 27 A and rated voltages of 500 VDC, 700 VDC, 900 VDC, and 1200 VDC at +85 °C.



  • AEC-Q200 qualified (rev. D) up to 105 °C

  • High robustness under high humidity

  • THB 60 °C, 93 %, 56 days RH at rated UNDC

  • High ripple current capability, low ESR, low ESL

  • Mounting: radial



  • EV/PHEV power converters

  • On-board and inductive charging systems

  • Automotive HVAC systems

  • Motor drives



Samples and production quantities of the MKP1848Se DC-Link are now available with a lead time of 20 weeks.
