K…H multilayer ceramic capacitors from Vishay, and stocked by RS Components, are AEC-Q200 qualified and suitable for the harshest automotive operating conditions. These MLCCs feature an unmatched maximum operating temperature of +175C, and are constructed from a stable C0G dielectric. These radial ceramic capacitors have a capacitance change of ±330ppm/K between -55C and +175C. Providing a new standard of performance and reliability, the HOTcap range from the company is produced with a unique wet build process and noble metal electrodes. Featuring 100% tinned copper clad leads, straight leads or crimped leads are available, with spacing of 2.5mm or 5mm. These high operating temperature MLCCs also feature UL 94 V-0 flame retardant epoxy resin.
