DO 160

Passive components manufacturer AVX Corp. now offers a DO 160 test option for capacitors intended for use in flight applications.

A recent FAA study concluded that the typical civilian aircraft gets struck with lightning approximately every 1,000 hours of flight time. That fact is significant due to the growing complexity and importance of electronics on control surfaces.

AVX offers lot testing with two DO 160 waveforms:

??Waveform 4 - levels 3 and 4
?? Waveform 5a and 5b - levels 3 and 4.

This test option is offered on all AVX HV01-HV06 DIP leaded stacked capacitors, SV conformally coated radial leaded capacitors, and high voltage SMT MLCCs with voltage ratings >/=1kv.
