AVX FLEXISAFE MLC Chips
AVX has developed a range of components specifically for safety critical applications. Utilizing the award-winning FLEXITERM™ layer in conjunction with the cascade design previously used for high voltage MLCCs, a range of ceramic capacitors is now available for customers who require components designed with an industry leading set of safety features. The FLEXITERM™ layer protects the component from any damage to the ceramic resulting from mechanical stress during PCB assembly or use with end customers. Board flexure type mechanical damage accounts for the majority of MLCC failures. The addition of the cascade structure protects the component from low insulation resistance failure resulting from other common causes for failure, such as thermal stress damage, repetitive strike ESD damage, and placement damage. With the inclusion of the cascade design structure to complement the FLEXITERM™ layer, the FLEXISAFE range of capacitors has unbeatable safety features.

AVX W2F/W3F Series SMT Feedthrough Capacitors
AVX W2F/W3F series feedthrough capacitors are designed to provide a standalone broadband EMI filtering solution in a small EIA standard sizes 0805 and 1206. W2F/W3F series feedthrough capacitors can replace a discrete Tee filter solution that uses two series ferrite beads and one parallel capacitor, effectively reducing board space usage by replace three components with one. This approach also offers the added advantage of eliminating hysteresis from current surges, typically experienced by ferrite beads. W2F/W3F series capacitors are also useful for decoupling high speed traces and low voltage power rails due their low parasitic inductance.

AP Series of SMP Low Cap Varistors
AVX Antenna PowerGuard products are an ultra low capacitance extension of reliable AntennaGuard range with new voltage, low capacitance, tight capacitance tolerances, and energy ratings. Designed for use in RF circuits, sensors, high-speed lines, optic circuits and capacitance sensitive applications. The ability to handle larger transients makes the Antenna PowerGuard series useful in applications where capacitance sensitive circuit needs to be protected against higher energy and AEC-Q200 qualification allows for use in automotive applications. These low capacitance values have low insertion loss, low leakage current and unsurpassed reliability compared to diode options. These advantages combined with size advantages and bi-directional protection make the Antenna PowerGuard the right choice for automotive and general applications, that are sensitive to capacitance.
AVX Accu-P capacitors
Modern vehicles have a complicated RF environment where cross band interference is an issue. AVX has Accu-P® capacitors that can be configured to create narrow band, high Q filters to direct and isolate signals from creating cross band interference.
