X-Reference database expanded

The X-Reference database from EPCOS has become even more comprehensive and consequently more useful. The aluminum electrolytic capacitors have grown by around 7000 current types from competitors, pushing the total up to more than 11 000 products. The number of film capacitors has also grown; 4000 new types have been added.

With the help of the X-Reference offering customers can quickly and comfortably find comparable EPCOS components for a broad range of products of important competitors. The search is conducted using product ordering codes. With one click users can access key technical information and the latest data sheets. This allows customers to see whether the EPCOS component could be suitable for their application. In addition to aluminum electrolytic and film capacitors, the database also includes EMC filters, inductors and thermistors.
