Automotive Solid Electrolytic Capacitors

Automotive electronics encompasses a wide range of applications, from cabin entertainment, airbags and ABS to underhood applications and autonomous car control systems. Each have different requirements dependent on their location within the vehicle with different operating requirements for temperature, voltage and reliability level.

AVX offers a wide range of Automotive Solid Electrolytic Capacitors in three product families. Each of these technologies bring specific and unique features to best suit the specific application requirements and expectations.

  • Conventional Tantalum / MnO2 Capacitors
    (Long life time, no wear out mechanism, stable capacitance, high operating temperature)
  • Conductive Polymer Solid Electrolytics
    (very low ESR, benign failure mode, high voltage ratings)
  • Niobium Oxide (OxiCap®) Capacitors
    (extreme stability, unique high resistance / open current / benign failure mode, stable capacitance / extremely stable performance ideal for low voltage automotive applications)
  • High Temperature MnO2 Capacitors capable of meeting automotive and industrial standards for high temperature capacitors (175°C operating) including AEC-Q200
