Fountain Inn, South Carolina – AVX Corp., a leading manufacturer of passive components and interconnect solutions, has released the MQ series medical grade MLCCs (multilayer ceramic capacitor). MQ series medical-grade MLCCs are available in eight EIA case sizes spanning 0402 to 2225, and four dielectric materials: NP0 (C0G), X7R, X7S, and X5R. Voltage ratings for the series range from 4V to 100V, capacitance values span 1pF to 100μF, and capacitance tolerances extend from ±0.1pF to ±30%. MQ series capacitors are also available with four termination options: plated Ni/Sn, 60/40 Sn/Pb, 5% minimum Pb-plated solder, and gold plated.

NP0 (C0G), X7R, and X7S MQ series MLCCs are rated for operating temperatures spanning -55°C to +125°C. Operating temperatures for X5R MQ series MLCCs range from -55°C to +85°C. MQ series capacitors in 0402, 1210, 1812, 1825, and 2225 cases are compatible with reflow soldering, and 0603, 0805, and 1206 cases are compatible with both reflow and wave. Components can be purchased directly from AVX, and are shipped on 7" or 13" reels or in waffle packaging. Lead-time for the series is 15 weeks.

MQ series medical grade MLCCs are manufactured and reliability and performance tested at AVX's Myrtle Beach, South Carolina facility, which is TS 16949 certified. For more information about this certification, or to request a specific rating, please contact Lizzie Geismar by calling 864.967.2150.
