AVX Corp. has expanded its AR Series of radial leaded capacitors to include
AEC-Q200 qualified devices in the axial configuration. Designated the Spinguard
AA Series, these devices are axial leaded multi-layer ceramic capacitor to meet
electronic component qualification initiative for automotive applications. AVX
axial leaded capacitors meet AEC-Q200 level certifications for capacitance
values of 0.002, 0.01 and 0.1uf in 50 and 100V. The Spinguard AA Series is
available in X7R dielectric and features an operating temperature range of -55
to +125C, making the parts useful for a variety of automotive applications.
capacitors are AEC-Q200 qualified directly from the AVX factory with PPAP
(production part approval process) qualification data available upon
request. There is no need for secondary
qualifications at the user sight, reducing time-to-market. Pricing for the AA
Series typically starts at $.075 to $.200 for 10,000 piece quantities,
depending on capacitance and voltage combinations with a lead time of 11 weeks.
Why would the biggest connector company in the world design and build the first fully functional 3D-printed motorcycle? To show TE Connectivity's engineers what the technology can really do in making working load-bearing production parts, and free up their thinking when approaching design problems.
The enhanced ST8 includes new functionality designed to help users accelerate design speed and improve the user’s ability to leverage synchronous technology. The update offers greater flexibility in choice of platform and purchasing options, according to the company.
“How can European standards affect me, especially since I only use machines built in the US?” This is a common question, and one way to answer this is to look at how machine safety is enforced, where the information comes from, and how well you can prove you followed the regulations.
