Abstract: DOWNLOAD TECHNICAL PAPER
In nowadays modern cars we can find many electronic systems controling engine, gear box, caring for passenger comfort, assuring safety and security, etc. Automotive applications are specific by their harsh electrical and environmental conditions together with requirements for high overall reliability and lifetime. Any electronic part used in such system play important role to assure reliability and functionality. Different capacitor technologies –tantalum, MLCC, NbO, aluminium are available but some of them meet the specific requirements better than others.
