March 18, 2013 – Mouser Electronics, Inc. announces the arrival of AVX’s new ESD-Safe™ MLC Capacitor, an enhanced MLCC specifically designed for general Electro Static Discharge (ESD) protection.
The ESD-Safe™ MLC Capacitors from AVX, utilized for ESD protection of I/O gates, are AEC-Q200 qualified for use in automotive modules where ESD problems can arise during the initial assembly/mating to the harness. These small footprint, ESD-withstanding MLCCs average the electrical potential of two objects due to the ESD charging, and their wide capacitance value range (1nF-2.2µF) ensures the correct capacitance is selected to minimize distortion of the circuit. AVX’s ESD-Safe™ MLC Capacitors have an ESD rating from 18kV to 30kV. To learn more, visit http://www.mouser.com/new/AVX/avx-ESDsafe-MLC/.
