AVX Corporation has supported the Automotive Industry requirements for Multilayer Ceramic Capacitors
consistently for more than 25 years. Products have been developed and tested specifically for automotive
applications and all manufacturing facilities are QS9000 and VDA 6.4 approved.
AVX is using AECQ200 as the qualification vehicle for this transition. A detailed qualification package is available
on request and contains results on a range of part numbers.
