AVX has developed a range of multilayer ceramic capacitors designed for use in applications up to 150ºC. These 0805 size capacitors are manufactured with an X8R and an X8L dielectric material. X8R material has capacitance variation of ±15% between -55ºC and +150ºC. The X8L material has capacitance variation of ±15% between -55ºC to 125ºC and +15/-40% from +125ºC to +150ºC.The need for X8R and X8L performance has been driven by customer requirements for parts that operate at elevated temperatures. They provide a highly reliable capacitor with low loss and stable capacitance over temperature.They are ideal for automotive under the hood sensors, and various industrial applications. Typical industrial application would be drilling monitoring system. They can also be used as bulk capacitors for high temperature camera modules.
Both ranges are qualified to the highest automotive AEC-Q200 standards
Excellent reliability compared to other capacitor technologies
