Avnet Abacus expands range of high-temperature and high-reliability capacitors from AVX and Panasonic
Semiconductor specialist Avnet Abacus has expanded its extensive range of passive components with new high-temperature and high-reliability capacitors from AVX and Panasonic Europe. Targeting diverse applications in aerospace, defence, industrial and medical markets, the capacitors are designed to offer high-reliability operation in often-extreme environmental conditions. Increasing levels of integration in aerospace and defence industries have led to electronic systems often being positioned in close proximity to heat sources such as automobile or aircraft engines, therefore demanding components that can operate above usually specified temperature limits. Maximum operating temperatures are also increasing significantly, in some cases beyond 200°C, particularly in applications such as automotive systems or down-hole drilling equipment. In addition, there is more and more demand for electronic systems that offer precision and stability at temperatures up to 175°C in industrial and medical fields. To meet these demands, Avnet Abacus is now stocking through its offices in Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Russia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey and the United Kingdom, a range of high-temperature capacitors from AVX and Panasonic.
