November 28, 2013 // By Graham Prophet
Murata has extended its automotive qualified MLCC offering with addition of AEC-Q200 and ISO7637-2 parts

Added to Murata's AEC-Q200 qualified multi layer ceramic capacitors (MLCC) aimed at automotive applications are the RCE and RHE series radial leaded MLCCs that fully conform to the automotive environmental stress test requirement AEC-Q200 and conducted surge pulse immunity specification ISO7637-2.

The RCE series comprises capacitors in the range 1 pF to 22 µF and working voltage from 25 to 1 kV. Operating temperature range is up to 125C.

With an operating temperature up to 150C the RHE series devices are available with 50 – 100 VDC working voltage and capacitance values from 100 pf to 10 µF. The RHE series is guaranteed to operate in temperatures up to 170C for 100 hours when a temperature mission profile is agreed with Murata in advance.

Both series are aimed at high frequency EMI noise suppression in an X/Y filter arrangement. Murata Europe;  www.murata.eu
