The new VJ automotive series devices are available in terminations with 100 % tin plate matte finish (VJ....31), and for hybrid applications the devices are available with a conductive epoxy assembly termination (VJ….34).
The new capacitors are manufactured in Noble Metal Electrode Technology (NME) with a wet build process, and they are qualified according to AEC-Q200 with PPAP available on request. Typical applications for the devices will include sensors, engine/ignition control, boardnet management, power steering and active safety controls, and controls for doors, windows, and air conditioning.
The new VJ automotive series devices offer voltage ratings up to 100 V and a wide capacitance range of 330 pF to 27 nF. The VJ….31 / VJ….34 X8R MLCCs provide a temperature coefficient of capacitance (TCC) of ± 15 % over the temperature range of -55 °C to +150 °C, and they are RoHS-compliant and halogen-free.
