AVX is the First to Achieve NASA's S-311-P-838 Specification for Space-Level BME X7R MLCC Technology

FOUNTAIN INN, S.C., May 4, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AVX Corporation, a leading manufacturer of passive components and interconnect solutions, is the first — and currently only — company to be recognized as a qualified supplier of space-level base metal electrode (BME) X7R dielectric multilayer ceramic capacitors (MLCCs) for use in aerospace designs and US military applications under the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's (NASA's) S-311-P-838 specification. This specification defines the requirements for high reliability, ceramic dielectric, multilayer, base metal electrode, fixed-value chip capacitors for high-reliability space applications, in addition to the processing verification and inspections required by assemblies used in flight. After several years of extensive testing and a meticulous, months-long review of the qualification data, AVX's full range of space-level BME X7R MLCCs — spanning 0603 to 1812 case sizes, 2.2nF to 8.2μF capacitance values, and 16V to 100V ratings— are now listed on the NASA website as approved electronic components for applications including I/O filtering and bulk storage in the switch mode power supplies (SMPS) in space and satellite communications and launchers, military defense and weapons systems, and radar systems.
