Vishay Intertechnology AC and Pulse Film Capacitors Serve Automotive Applications

December 3, 2019 Alix Paultre

Vishay Intertechnology’s automotive-grade AC and pulse metallized polypropylene film capacitors for hybrid and electric vehicles offer a maximum operating temperature of +125°C (observing voltage derating). Vishay BCcomponents MKP385e devices ensure compliance with IEC 60384-17 and AEC-Q200 Revision D, while withstanding temperature humidity bias (THB) testing of 60°C, 93% RH for 56 days at rated voltage.

Offered in compact packages, the robust devices are available in eight rated voltages, from 400 VDC to 2500 VDC. Capacitors with voltage ratings of 630 VDC and below feature a mono construction, while devices with voltages above 630 VDC offer a series film construction. The capacitors offer rated capacitance from 0.001µF to 15µF, low ESR down to 4 mΩ, and high ripple current capabilities up to 19.3A.
