According to the company, the robust capacitors are designed for demanding automotive applications.
Qualified to the Automotive Electronics Council’s AEC-Q200 specification for passive components, the TCQ Series is said to meet the AEC’s 125°C lifetime stability test and humidity bias testing at 85°C and 85% relative humidity for up to 1000 hours.
Operation temperatures range from -55 to 125°C. According to the company, the capacitors feature a conductive polymer electrode and have a benign failure mode under recommended use conditions.
The TCQ series are lead-free and RoHS compliant, and are currently available in three case sizes: 1210 (EIA Metric 3528-21), 2917 (EIA Metric 7343-31) and 2917 (EIA Metric 7343-20).
The full voltage range for the series is said to span 4 to 50V, and capacitance values span 10 to 220μF with a ±20% capacitance tolerance. They can be operated up to 90% of rated voltage.
