 New AVX capacitor virtually eliminates short-circuit failure
Passives specialist AVX has produced a ceramic capacitor designed to virtually eliminate the risk of short-circuit failure. FLEXISAFE components are terminated with the FLEXITERM layer to absorb shock and prevent internal cracking resulting from board flexure and temperature cycling damage.
In conjunction with this technology, FLEXISAFE parts are structured with a “cascade electrode design” to protect the ceramic capacitor from low insulation resistance failure that results from thermal stress, repetitive strike ESD and placement damage. This cascade design was traditionally used by the company to manufacture its high voltage ceramic capacitors.

Parts are available in 0603 50V to 22nF, 0805 50V to 100nF, 1206 50V to 150nF and 1210 50V to 470nF. FLEXISAFE capacitors are recommended for new designs in military/ aerospace COTS+, automotive and safety critical designs. Devices are lead-free and comply with commercial, AEC-Q200 and COTS+ requirements.
