TDK's CGA3EA series MLCCs are highly reliable ESD protection components used in automotive applications

Image of TDK Corporation's CGA3EA SeriesThe amount of static electricity that is charged and generated from the human body is generally thousands of volts or more. TDK's CGA3EA series consists of in-vehicle products that protect electronic components from static electricity. The series has passed the most rigorous level (level 4 - 8000 V) of ESD tests for contact discharge described under the IE61000-4-2 international standard.

TDK's CGA series multilayer ceramic chip capacitors (MLCCs) are qualified to the CDF-AEC-Q-200 test standard. CGA parts are manufactured using tested and stable manufacturing processes and are subjected to increased inspection to offer a higher level of reliability guarantee.

TDK's CGA3EA series is an excellent choice for automotive and other higher-reliability applications requiring ESD protection on the PCB I/O connector points because it offers higher capacitance and improved voltage-breakdown characteristics. Using this ESD capacitor also provides a cost-friendly solution when deciding on component selection between an MLCC, varistor, or Zener diode. The CGA3EA family is available in 100 V with capacitances between 1 nF and 10 nF. It is available in C0G (125°C) or NP0 (150°C) temperature characteristics.

Available in Tape and Reel (-2-ND), Cut Tape (-1-ND), and custom Digi-Reel® (-6-ND).
