AVX's Spinguard AA series is the industry's first AEC-Q200 qualified axial leaded MLC capacitor

AVX Corporation, has expanded its AR Series of radial leaded capacitors to include AEC-Q200 qualified devices in the axial configuration. Designated the Spinguard AA Series, these devices are the industry’s first axial leaded multi-layer ceramic capacitor to meet the latest electronic component qualification initiative for automotive applications.

The leaded capacitors are AEC-Q200 qualified directly from the AVX factory with PPAP (production part approval process) qualification data available upon request. There is no need for secondary qualifications at the user sight, reducing time-to-market.

“Providing our customers with a broad selection of AEC-Q200 qualified leaded capacitors, the Spinguard AA Series axial leaded capacitors complement our existing AR Series radial leaded capacitor offering. The advantages of the technology are a natural fit in both underhood and in-cabin automotive applications,” said Dan Lane, marketing manager at AVX.
AVX axial leaded capacitors meet AEC-Q200 level certifications for capacitance values of 0.002uf, 0.01uf, and 0.1uf in 50 and 100 volts. The Spinguard AA Series is available in X7R dielectric and features an operating temperature range of -55ºC to +125ºC, making the parts ideal for a variety of automotive applications.
