Range of capacitors designed for high voltage EV applications

Range of capacitors designed for high voltage EV applications
Automotive is one of the strongest growing markets for electronic components worldwide. AEC-Q200 compliant components are consistently being designed into automotive systems such as EV power train and battery management, infotainment, engine control, air bags, lighting and more. The demand for ‘off-the-shelf', yet highly rugged devices is expanding fast, and in many cases outstripping supply.
