Vishay’s TANTAMOUNT® CWR06 and CWR16 Solid Tantalum Chip Capacitors Now Available with MIL-PRF-55365 “T”-Level Failure Rate for Space-Level Applications
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
For high-reliability applications, the CWR06 offers a capacitance range of 0.10 µF to 100 µF over voltage ratings from 4 WVDC to
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
Production quantities of the T-level-rated capacitors are available now, with lead times of 20 weeks for larger orders.
