TCQ Series Automotive Conductive Polymer Chip Capacitors for a Wide Range of Automotive, Industrial, and Telecommunication Applications
AVX Corporation has expanded and improved its AEC-Q200-qualified TCQ Series Automotive Conductive Polymer Chip Capacitors for a wide range of demanding automotive, industrial, and telecommunications applications with limited board space and challenging operating environments. The new capacitors offer C/V ratings spanning 10–470μF and 2.5–50V with a ±20% capacitance tolerance; it also provides low DC leakage (0.1CV), high capacitance, and stable electrical performance in operating temperatures extending from -55°C to +125°C.
The TCQ Series capacitors are ideally suited for space-constrained, harsh-environment applications including body electronics, cabin controls, comfort and infotainment systems, aftermarket automotive electronics, DC/DC converters, and coupling/decoupling, and are equipped with conductive polymer electrodes that enable a benign failure mode under recommended use conditions. The new capacitors deliver exceptional endurance and stability for 2,000 hours at 125°C, exceeding the already-stringent AEC-Q200 operational life requirement by 100%.
TCQ Series capacitors exhibit basic reliability of 1% per 1,000 hours at 85°C and rated voltage with 60% confidence. They are also 3x reflow compatible at 260°C, lead-free compatible, and RoHS compliant, and are manufactured in an IATF 16949 certified facility.
