There has been an increasing trend towards higher operating temperatures in automotive electronic components and Vishay has addressed this growing need with the introduction of its new HOTcaps™ series.

With an operating temperature range of -55°C to +175°C HOTcaps™ boast the widest temperature range currently available in the marketplace.

In addition, the series is compliant with AEC-Q200 – the global stress-resistance standard for passive electronic components – as well as being RoHS compliant; and is coated with flame retardant epoxy resin according to UL 94 V-0.

Created for use in the most demanding areas within automotive and aerospace, such as transmission, engines and brake systems, HOTcaps™ are ideal for turbo chargers, throttle valves and jet engines.

The HOTcaps™ series includes options for crimped and straight leads with 2.5 mm or 5 mm spacing with lead wires measuring 0.5 or 0.6 mm. They are constructed from 100% tinned copper-clad steel.

This advanced new series from Vishay provides an innovative and robust capacitor solution for withstanding extremely high operating temperatures for aerospace and automotive, as well as down-drilling applications.
