Vishay Extends EP1 High Energy Wet Tantalum Capacitor With New Ratings in the B and C Case Codes

Category articles

To meet the requirements of armed forces and avionics applications, Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today revealed that it has actually expanded its EP1 damp tantalum capacitor with brand-new scores in the B and also C instance codes. Using the market’s highest possible capacitance per voltage ranking as well as case size for this gadget type, the capacitor is offered with radial through-hole or surface-mount terminations in the A, B, as well as C instance codes, each with a stud-mount choice, for raised layout adaptability.

The EP1’s industry-leading values consist of a capacitance of 12,000 µF at 80 V in the C situation dimension, which is 33 % greater than the closest competing tool. The capacitor includes a typical capacitance tolerance of ± 20 %, with ± 10 % tolerance readily available.

Enhanced for pulse power as well as power hold-up applications in laser assistance, radar, and also avionics systems, the EP1 is housed in an all-tantalum, hermetically secured case for boosted integrity. The tool operates over a temperature series of -55 ° C to +85 ° C, to +125 ° C with voltage derating, as well as supplies optimum ESR down to 0.015 Ω at 1 kHz and also +25 ° C. The capacitor is readily available with tin/ lead (Sn/ Pb) and RoHS-compliant 100 % tin discontinuations.

Samples as well as production quantities of the EP1 B as well as C situation are readily available now, with lead times of 16 weeks for bigger orders.
