IPDiA launches 200 °c automotive grade silicon capacitors in ultra-miniaturized case sizes
IPDiA, world leader in 3D silicon passive components, has developed a new range of capacitors called ATSC dedicated to ‘under the hood’ applications.
The ATSC range meets the demand of automotive sensor manufacturers who are looking for long life components with performance preserved when exposed to harsh conditions. The devices feature a remarkable operating temperature range of -55 °C to +200 °C. They offer unprecedented miniaturization with size reduction by a factor of 10 compared with traditional technologies. These SiCaps are available in 0202, 0505 and 0605 case sizes with respectively 1 nF, 47 nF and 100 nF capacitance. They yield an electrical breakdown voltage of 30 V and very low leakage current (<0.5 nA at the working voltage and room temperature). They also show low loss factors (equivalent series resistance ESR <100 m and equivalent series inductance ESL <250 pH). The ATS capacitors have been developed with a rated voltage of 16 V, in order to meet automotive voltage rating requirements, specified at a minimum value of 14 V, and have been qualified according to the Automotive Electronics Council requirements AEC-Q100.
