New line of 4kV capacitors launched

Jon Lawson

Automotive is one of the strongest growing markets for electronic components worldwide. AEC-Q200 compliant components are consistently being designed into automotive systems such as EV powertrain and battery management, infotainment, engine control, air bags, lighting and more. The demand for off-the-shelf, yet highly rugged devices is expanding fast, and in many cases outstripping supply. 

Under the Syfer brand, the AEC-Q200 series of MLCC capacitors from Knowles Precision Devices (KPD) has had a range extension increasing the available working voltage from 2kV up to a maximum of 4kV. Designed for EV applications where ever higher voltages are needed, but where a margin for derating has to be accommodated for - like battery management and invertors. Available in X7R dielectric, and with capacitance up to 22nF, this extension joins an offering of Syfer AEC-Q200 qualified MLCC capacitors and complements the AEC-Q200 qualified components KPD offer. Available as standard with KPD’s lead-free, RoHS and REACH compliant, FlexiCap termination for crack prevention and high number thermal cycles.
