Dual-Use Legislation And MLCCs

app note

Today, many electrical systems are demanding higher operating voltages and temperatures, along with higher capacitance values – particularly in the fast-growing area of power electronics for electric vehicles (EVs). Therefore, electrical design engineers are looking to use multilayer ceramic capacitors (MLCCs) in these applications due to their inherent low inductance and wide operating temperature range. However, this potentially perfect component could bring manufacturers and distributers into conflict with international export law if you are not careful. This application note explores the details of dual-use trade controls, how to determine if your MLCCs could fall under this regulation, and what you need to do to stay in compliance.
