MLCCs are qualified to AEC-Q200 & rated for 1,000VDC

MLCCs are qualified to AEC-Q200 & rated for 1,000VDC
A series of high voltage, automotive grade, MLC, radial-leaded capacitors has been introduced by AVX. The SV series capacitors are designed with C0G (NP0) Class I dielectric materials, which exhibit an extremely low dissipation factor, providing excellent high rms current handling capabilities with minimal power losses in medium to high power resonant converters.

AEC-Q200-qualified resistors have low TCR tracking

AEC-Q200-qualified resistors have low TCR tracking
AEC-Q200-qualified, high-precision, dual-in-line, thin film resistor networks from Vishay Intertechnology have low TCR tracking of ± 5ppm/°C. The AORN series also have tight ratio tolerances to ± 0.05% and long-term ratio stability of 0.015 % after 1,000 hours at +155°C. For improved ESD and moisture protection, the resistor networks are constructed with a tantalum nitride resistor film on a high-purity alumina or ceramic substrate.

Leadless thermistor dies use IGBT-style mounting

Leadless thermistor dies use IGBT-style mounting
Vishay has introduced two leadless NTC thermistor dies, contacted on the top and bottom, that provide designers with the same mounting options as IGBT semiconductors. Featuring gold metallisation, the NTCC300E4 supports gold wire bonding and conductive adhesive gluing, while the NTCC200E4 with silver metallisation supports aluminium wire bonding and is compatible with reflow soldering and nano-silver paste sintering.
