AVX Releases New TCO Series Capacitators

Manufacturing Technology Insights | Monday, October 04, 2021

AVX’s TCO series capacitors are based on its TCQ capacitors which have over five years of proven success in the field.

FREMONT, CA: AVX Corporation released the new TCO Series high-temperature, automotive-grade polymer chip capacitors, which fulfills AEC-Q200 Stress Test Qualification for Passive Components criteria and are rated for operating temperatures up to 150°C at category voltage and provide stable performance at 85°C, 85 percent relative humidity, and rated voltage for up to 1,000 hours.

TCO Series capacitors are currently available as D-case (EIA Metric 7343-31) components rated MSL 3 per J-STD-020 and for 10F 20 percent tolerance, 50VDC at 105°C, a maximum of 50A DCL, 150mÎ maximum ESR at 100kHz, and operating temperatures ranging from -55°C to +150°C, but several other codes are actively being developed. They're also RoHS compliant, lead-free compatible, and can survive three 260°C reflow cycles. Automotive cabin control, infotainment, and comfort systems; body electronics that manage safety, power management, and diagnostic systems; and aftermarket electronics like dash cams, radar detectors, navigation systems, subwoofers, amplifiers, and headrest monitors; and DC/DC converters and coupling/decoupling circuits in industrial and Telecom.

“The new TCO Series high-temperature, automotive-grade polymer chip capacitors are based on our TCQ Series automotive polymer capacitors, which now have more than five years of field-proven success,” said Allen Mayar, AVX Electrolytic Capacitors global product manager. “Both polymer capacitor series satisfy the stringent AEC-Q200 requirements for automotive use thanks to superior material selections, design decisions, and manufacturing processes, and the new TCO Series offers the additional benefit of 150°C operation at category voltage.”

TCO Series capacitors are provided in seven- or thirteen-inch pure tin reels for automated assembly, with a 20-week lead time.

With 33 manufacturing facilities in 16 countries, AVX Corporation is a prominent international manufacturer and provider of innovative electronic components, interconnect, sensing, control, and antenna systems. Capacitors, resistors, filters, couplers, sensors, controllers, circuit protection devices, connectors, and antennas are just a few of the components available from AVX.
