Soft termination capacitors less prone to mechanical stress in automotive applications

Murata has unveiled the GCJ series of monolithic ceramic capacitors, designed to accommodate the bending, vibration and thermal conditions experienced in under bonnet automotive applications.

The devices incorporate a soft termination with a ceramic body to enable them to absorb any excessive mechanical stress resulting from board flexing or temperature cycles.

The series is available in 0603, 0805, 1206 and 1210 packages. Capacitance values from 1nF to 10uF are offered in 10, 16, 25, 50 and 100V.
