TDK Corporation has expanded its portfolio of automotive-grade multi-layer ceramic capacitors (MLCCs) with new mid-voltage types featuring C0G temperature characteristics and rated voltages from 100 V to 630 V. The new components in the CGA series offer capacitance values that are very high for C0G components. In particular, the new 100 nF / 630 V device with dimensions of 5.7 mm x 5.0 mm (package size conform to IEC 5750 or EIA 2220) is, according to the manufacturer, the world’s highest voltage rating for a capacitor of this size and capacitance.
The new high reliability components are designed for operating temperatures of up to 125 °C, and are qualified to AEC-Q200. The expanded series offers a wide lineup of sizes from 1005 to 5750 (EIA 0402 to 2220) and combines the high reliability and high capacitance required for automotive applications. The addition of new types rated for 450 V (2012 size and above) and 5750 size types, has increased the range of C0G mid-voltage MLCCs substantially, providing increased flexibility for various market requirements.
