Tantalum Chip Caps Now Available In Z Case Size

Vishay Intertechnology has extended its T55 series of vPolyTan surface-mount polymer tantalum molded chip capacitors with components in the Z case (EIA 7343-19) size. With a 0.1 mm lower height than devices in the standard V case (EIA 7343-20), the capacitors increase package density and enable the design of thinner end products. The devices are optimized for power management, battery decoupling, and energy storage in computers, servers, network infrastructure equipment, solid-state drives, and wireless transceivers.

 

Offered in J, P, A, B, T (low-profile B — 1.2 mm max), D, V, and Z case sizes, the T55 series features a capacitance range from 3.3 µF to 680 µF over voltage ratings from 2.5V to 63V, and a capacitance tolerance of ± 20 %. The capacitors provide ESR specs from 500 mΩ down to 7 mΩ at +25 °C. Capacitance values up to 1,000 µF and ESR values down to 6 mΩ are in development.

SENSORS EXPO & CONFERENCE

Sensors 2019 Hits Silicon Valley June 25-27!

Join 7,000+ engineers this June in San Jose at the sensor industry’s biggest event! With 65+ Technical Sessions, 100+ Leading Speakers, 10 new and updated tracks, and 300+ Interactive Exhibits, there’s more opportunity than ever to connect with this booming industry and the technologies driving it. See thousands of the newest technologies in action, learn about the latest applications, and develop invaluable partnerships at the only event dedicated to sensors, connectivity, and systems.

 

Operating over a temperature range of -55°C to +105°C, the capacitors offer excellent ripple current rating up to 5.66 AIRMS and provide low internal resistance. Samples and production quantities of the T55 series capacitors in the Z case size are available now, with lead times of 12 to 14 weeks. For more details and specs, peruse the T55 series datasheet.
