This release in:

MALVERN, PENNSYLVANIA — Sept. 16, 2010 — Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today released the industry’s first surface-mount aluminum capacitors that combine an ultra-low impedance down to 0.035 Ω for better filtering with high ripple current to 1.75 A for higher reliability, while offering more process flexibility by meeting the rigorous IPC/JEDEC J-STD-020 soldering standard for severe reflow conditions.

The new 146 CTI capacitors offer the most severe reflow soldering profile available in eight case sizes, ranging from 10 mm by 10 mm by 10 mm to the larger 18 mm by 18 mm by 21 mm. The devices released today provide high-temperature performance to +125C, impedance from 0.035 Ω to 0.430 Ω at 100 kHz and +20C, ripple currents from 400 mA to 1,750 mA at 100 kHz and +125C, and a long useful life to 6,000 hours at +125C.

As polarized aluminum electrolytic capacitors with a non-solid, self-healing electrolyte, the AEC-Q200-qualified devices are ideally suited for filtering, smoothing, buffering, and voltage decoupling applications. Typical end products will include automotive power trains and chassis electronics; industrial drives, automation, and equipment for renewable energy; and SMPS units.

The RoHS-compliant 146 CTI capacitors are charge- and discharge-proof, so there is no peak current limitation. For vibration-proof performance, the devices are offered in 4-pin and 6-pin versions.



Device Specifications:

Series 146 CTI
Case sizes (mm) 10x10x10 to 18x18x21
Capacitance at 100 Hz (F) 22 to 4,700
Voltage range (V) 16 to 63
Impedance (Z) at 100 kHz, 20 C (Ω) 0.035 to 0.430
Ripple current at 100 kHz, 125 C (mA) 400 to 1,750
Temperature range - 55C to +125C

Samples of the new capacitors are available on request. Production quantities will be available in November 2010, with lead times of eight to 12 weeks.
