MALVERN, PENNSYLVANIA — April 29, 2010 — Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today announced that its CWR06 and CWR16 TANTAMOUNT® solid tantalum chip capacitors are now approved to the “T”-level requirements of MIL-PRF-55365 for space-level applications.

To establish reliability for a T-level rating, Vishay’s CWR06 and CWR16 undergo additional testing, tightened raw material control and production lot definition and control, as well as Weibull level C or D failure rate, and 100 % C surge at - 55 °C, + 0 °C, and + 85 °C. In addition, the capacitors receive a 100 % visual and x-ray inspection, destructive physical analysis (DPA) and report, and 2,000-hour life test prior to shipment.

For high-reliability applications, the CWR06 offers a capacitance range of 0.10 µF to 100 µF over voltage ratings from 4 WVDC to 50 WVDC, while the CWR16 offers a capacitance range from 0.33 µF to 330 µF over voltage ratings from 4 WVDC to 35 WVDC.

Both devices feature an operating temperature of - 55 °C to + 85 °C, + 125 °C with voltage derating, in eight case codes (A through H). The capacitors offer capacitance tolerance of ± 10 % and ± 20 % standard, with ± 5 % available, and maximum ESR down to 0.9 Ω at 100 kHz.

Offered in tape-and-reel packaging per EIA 481, the CWR06 and CWR16 feature RoHS-compliant gold-plate terminations standard, with solder plated and hot solder dipped terminations also available.

Production quantities of the T-level-rated capacitors are available now, with lead times of 20 weeks for larger orders.

Vishay Intertechnology, Inc., a Fortune 1000 Company listed on the NYSE (VSH), is one of the world's largest manufacturers of discrete semiconductors (diodes, MOSFETs, and infrared optoelectronics) and passive electronic components (resistors, inductors, and capacitors).
