AY2 Series Capacitors

AY2 Series Capacitors

Vishay Intertechnology has released a completely new series of leaded Y2-rated ceramic safety capacitors, which is a further development of the company's well-established VY2 series, that offers unprecedented levels of quality and reliability.

In addition to complying with the IEC 60384-14 safety standard, the new Vishay AY2 series capacitors are also qualified according to the AEC-Q200 specification, which includes the most stringent stress tests for passive components. A good example of the difference between the two standards is temperature cycling. The IEC 60384-14 standard requires that capacitors pass five full cycles over the complete operating temperature range. In contrast, the AEC standard requires a minimum number of 1000 temperature cycles.

The new Vishay AY2 capacitors achieve an unmatched level of performance: they withstand more than 2000 temperature cycles without a single failure, twice the AEC standard. With their superior robustness, the capacitors provide the highest levels of quality and reliability. They incorporate the very latest in ceramic material, capacitor design, and production technologies.
