WASC Series

Automotive Range
Wire bondable Automotive vertical Silicon Capacitors


The WAS Capacitor has been qualified according to AECQ-100 up to 68V, Grade 0 ( -40°C/+150°C) 2000 cycles TMCL. Qualification report of the BV150 technology according to AECQ100 requirements is available on request.
Target applications are decoupling and filtering of active devices when miniaturization and low ESL are required. The WASC offers capacitance range from 100pF up to 4,7nF. Other capacitance values and other package size can be available on request as a single die or capacitor array; please feel free to contact us. The WAS Capacitor is based on PICS Integrated Passive technology.
They are RoHS-compliant at the time of publication.
