The APS series of multilayer ceramic capacitors (MLCCs) for commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) applications has been extended with the addition of high-temperature models. The APS Series MLCCs are available in six case sizes from 0603 to 2220; in six voltage ranges spanning 16 to 500 V; and with capacitance values from 10 pF to 22 μF.
They are available with four different dielectric materials (NP0, X7R, X8R, and X8L), three capacitance tolerances (±5%, ±10%, and ±20%), and a number of different termination choices. When tested to military-standard (MIL-STD) requirements, the capacitors exhibit a low failure rate of less than 1 ppb. They are suitable for applications in military, aviation, and telecommunications circuits.
