AVX Corp.’s automotive U series radio frequency (RF) chip capacitors are designed to help automotive engineers satisfy consumer demands for increased connectivity and high-tech safety features. According to the company, the new C0G (NP0) dielectric capacitors offer ultralow equivalent series resistance, high Q, and lot-to-lot uniformity that meets or exceeds the requirements of AEC Q200. Lead-free and RoHS compliant, the new RF chip capacitors are suitable for applications in automotive WiFi, collision avoidance, vehicle communications, and traffic alert system applications. For use in temperatures ranging from -55 to +125°C (-67 to +257°F), the devices feature plated Ni/Sn terminations and are available in 0402 and 0603 case sizes. Capacitance values and tolerances for the series’ 0402 case size capacitors range from 0.2 to 22 pF at 1 MHz. For the 0603 case size capacitors, capacitance values and tolerances span 1.0 to 100 pF at 1 MHz.
