Rugged Capacitors Tackle Challenging Space Missions


AVX is offering military and space engineers with high-reliability multilayer ceramic surface-mount capacitors ideal for use in challenging applications, including: space launchers, satellite communications, and the input/output filtering lines of space power supplies.

The new 200V ESCC QPL 3009 PME MLCCs provide critical PCB space savings & component weight reductions over stacked ceramic capacitors & performance improvements over 100V MIL-PRF capacitors in mil/aero applications.

Featuring 0805–2220 case sizes, the new capacitors are compact, lightweight, and currently available with capacitance values spanning 330pF – 330nF.

The products are tested to the European Space Components Coordination’s (ESCC’s) stringent 3009 standard, which is widely used in space projects the world over.


The capacitors offer high-reliability performance in voltage ratings spanning 25–200V, capacitance values spanning 4.7pF to 2.2µF, and 0805–2220 cases with ESA Variant 03, 06, and 07 terminations, depending on the dielectric, according to AVX.

ESCC QPL 3009 PME MLCCs are available with standard lead times, and pricing is available upon request.
