C0G (NP0) Dielectric
General Specifications
C0G (NP0) is the most popular formulation of the
“temperature-compensating,” EIA Class I ceramic
materials. Modern C0G (NP0) formulations contain
neodymium, samarium and other rare earth oxides.
C0G (NP0) ceramics offer one of the most stable capacitor
dielectrics available. Capacitance change with temperature
is 0 ±30ppm/°C which is less than ±0.3% C from -55°C
to +125°C. Capacitance drift or hysteresis for C0G (NP0)
ceramics is negligible at less than ±0.05% versus up to
±2% for films. Typical capacitance change with life is less
than ±0.1% for C0G (NP0), one-fifth that shown by most
other dielectrics. C0G (NP0) formulations show no aging
characteristics.

GENERAL INFORMATION
“U” Series capacitors are C0G (NP0) chip capacitors spe -
cially designed for “Ultra” low ESR for applications in the
communications market. Max ESR and effective capacitance
are met on each value producing lot to lot uniformity.
Sizes available are EIA chip sizes 0402, 0603, 0805, and

General Specifications
AVX has developed a range of multilayer ceramic capacitors designed for use in applications up to 150ºC.
These capacitors are manufactured with an X8R and an X8L dielectric material. X8R material has
capacitance variation of ±15% between -55ºC and +150ºC. The X8L material has capacitance variation of
±15% between -55ºC to 125ºC and +15/-40% from +125ºC to +150ºC.
The need for X8R and X8L performance has been driven by customer requirements for parts that operate
at elevated temperatures. They provide a highly reliable capacitor with low loss and stable capacitance
over temperature.
They are ideal for automotive under the hood sensors, and various industrial applications. Typical industrial
application would be drilling monitoring system. They can also be used as bulk capacitors for high
temperature camera modules.
Both X8R and X8L dielectric capacitors are automotive AEC-Q200 qualified. Optional termination systems, tin,
FLEXITERM®and conductive epoxy for hybrid applications are available. Providing this series with our
FLEXITERM®termination system provides further advantage to customers by way of enhanced resistance to
both, temperature cycling and mechanical damage.
