Automotive Ceramic Capacitors (MLCC) with FLEXITERM® | KAF Series

Features & Benefits
  • Voltage: up to 200V
  • Capacitance Range:
    270pF up to 22uF (2220, 25Vdc)
  • Dielectric: X7R, X8R
Typical Applications
  • Improved reliability
  • Excellent mechanical performance and thermo mechanical performance

Multi Layer Ceramic Capacitors (MLCCs) equipped with an KYOCERA AVX flexible termination system – FLEXITERM®. Capacitors have superior resistance to both mechanical stress and thermal stress. Capacitors are qualified in accordance with AEC-Q200 standard. AEC-Q200 detailed qualification data is available on request.
FLEXITERM® is designed to enhance the mechanical flexure and temperature cycling performance. The automotive industry standard for flexure is 2mm minimum. Using FLEXITERM®, KYOCERA AVX provides up to 5mm of flexure without internal cracks. Beyond 5mm, capacitor will generally fail “open”.
