KYOCERA AVX MM Series MLCCs for Medical Applications

KYOCERA AVX MM Series MLCCs for Medical Applications are designed for medical applications other than implantable/life support. The MM components provide the design and change control expected for medical devices and offer enhanced LAT, including reliability testing with 100% inspection. These KYOCERA AVX capacitors offer a capacitance range of 0.5pF to 1.5µF in a 10V to 500V range with a -55°C to +125°C operating temperature range. The NP0 (C0G) versions feature plated Ni and SN termination finishes, and the X7R components have Flexiterm termination finishes.


  • MLCC technology for medical applications
  • Internal reliability qualification and lot acceptance testing (LAT) to support medical application requirements
  • Defined designs, materials, processes, and manufacturing facilities with change control that meets FDA requirements
  • Insulation resistance of 100,000MΩ or 1000MΩ - µF, whichever is less


  • Implantable, non-life sustaining medical devices, such as a temporary cardiac monitor or insulin pump
  • Non-implantable, life-sustaining medical devices, such as an external heart pump controller
  • External devices, such as patient monitoring and diagnostic equipment
