One of Knowles Capacitors fields of expertise is the design and manufacture of components important to engineers in the automotive industry. Today’s vehicles have many electric power units and electric control units that enable electric drive and absolute precise control.
The Automotive Electronics Council (AEC) Component Technical Committee is the standardization body for establishing standards for reliable, high quality electronic components. Components meeting these specifications are suitable for use in the harsh automotive environment without additional component-level qualification testing.
The Component Technical Committee established AEC-Q200 “Stress Test Qualification for Passive Components” to define the minimum stress test driven qualification requirements for passive electrical devices including ceramic capacitors.
Knowles has developed a range of MLC capacitors and surface mount EMI filters qualified to AEC-Q200 rev D to meet the needs of high reliability and automotive manufacturers, and Knowles currently supplies the AEC-Q200 products in the lead-time of 7 weeks.
