Two series of leaded MLCCs, which are halogen-free according to IEC 61249-2-21, have been released by TDK. The FG series consists of commercial-grade devices, while the FA series consists of automotive-grade devices. To support the design of environmentally friendly applications, the MLCCs do not use halogen as a flame retardant in the external resin coating.
The FG series covers a wide rated voltage range of 6.3-630V and a capacitance range of 1pF-100μF, while the FA series is available with rated voltages from 25 to 630V and rated capacitance values from 100pF to 22μF.
The AEC-Q200 FA series features MLCCs with NP0 and X8R temperature characteristics, which are designed for high temperature environments of up to +150°C. Leaded MLCCs with welded or crimped connections can be used to suppress EMI caused by the increasing number of motors used in modern cars.
