  •   Introduction


    The ever increasing presence of electronics in the automotive environment requires a wide diversity of passive components possessing advanced product characteristics and superior reliability.


    Not only are established systems like engine control, power steering, transmission, climate control, lighting, and ABS undergoing monumental changes, but relatively new systems, such as car-to-car communications, driver assistance, self-steering, and self-parking are experiencing similar transformations which call for a greater number of resistors and capacitors. Deeper integration within the automotive environment necessitates pushing the performance of passive components to the limit.

    Armed with this knowledge, Yageo has made a new series of automotive-qualified MLCC and R Chip components available to the market for use in current designs and as a precursor for future trends.
    The new MLCC and R Chip are fully designed to meet the following criteria:
    • AEC-Q200 qualified
    • Full PPAP available
    • Capable of performing under the most demanding of conditions
    • Mass production under TS 19649 certification

    Yageo has introduced the AC Automotive Series of MLCC capacitors in two temperature characteristics, NPO and X7R. The special product design, specifically selected raw materials, and dedicated mass production environment give the AC Automotive series excellent long term reliability and improved mechanical properties. As a discrete part or within an array, this new series covers the products required within infotainment and comfort and convenience applications.


    For the majority of automotive applications, the workhorse solution has been the standard AC series of R Chip Thick Film technology, available in 0201 to 2512 case sizes.


    Only a specially designed solution manufactured using selected materials can meet the needs of harsh environmental conditions in safety systems where sulfur may be a challenge. Yageo has the ultimate solution, the AA R Chip series.


    High precision resistors working under humid conditions must meet unsurpassed reliability standards. R Chip Thin Film AT products from Yageo are the perfect choice for circuitry in power steering, instrument clusters, ECU, and ABS.


    The third consideration in designing specialized solutions is derived from the automotive industry's constant need to increase the availability of circuitry and functions without increasing size. Traditionally, power dissipation had to be sacrificed to achieve miniaturization; Yageo's response is double and triple power resistors that enable small sizes without abandoning product performance.


    Although SMD resistors dominate the PCB, leaded resistors are still essential components in various part of the electronic assembly due to the combination of reliability, power dissipation and stability. Flame proof (FMP Series) and precision metal film (MFP series) resistors are used in infotainment and comfort and convenience design. Yageo also introduces the AHA series for aluminum housed resistors which are applied in automotive signal lights.


    In addition to the resistors and capacitors, Yageo ceramic patch/chip antennas and PCB antennas bring wireless connectivity to infotainment and telematic systems which enrich drivers' experiences and enhance safety while driving.


    The same knowledge and expertise which has helped Yageo develop its highly reliable components are also applied in assisting design engineers develop superior RoHS and REACH compliant solutions. By offering highly competitive and reliable solutions, Yageo realizes tomorrow's passive components for the automotive application.
