Vishay Intertechnology’s T59 Series of vPolyTan™ Low ESR Polymer Capacitors Named as 2017 ACE Awards Finalist
MALVERN, Pa. — Nov. 30, 2017 — Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today announced that its T59 series of vPolyTan™ multi-anode polymet surface-mount chip capacitors has been chosen as a 2017 ACE (Annual Creativity in Electronics) Awards finalist. The awards program, sponsored by EE Times and EDN magazine, recognizes “the best of the best in today’s electronics industry, including the hottest new products, start-up companies, design teams, executives, and more. “In the category of Passive, interconnects and Electromechanical,” the T59 series was selected as one of the three finalists.
Vishay’s T59 series capacitors deliver up to 25 % better volumetric efficiency than similar devices to provide the industry’s highest capacitance density, which in turn allows designers to reduce component counts, save PCB space, and lower overall solution costs. For example, their capacitance of 150 µF at 30 V is three times higher in capacitance than the closest competing device. In addition, the capacitor’s patented multi-array packaging (MAP) ensures ultra low ESR from 25 mΩ to 150 mΩ at 25 °C and 100 kHz.
Available in the molded EE (7343-43) case code, the devices offer capacitance from 15 µF to 470 µF, with capacitance tolerance of ± 20%, and overvoltage ratings up to 75 V. The T59 series features ripple current up to 3.1 A at 100 kHz and an operating temperature range of -55 °C to +105 °C. The capacitors are optimized for decoupling, smoothing, filtering and energy storage applications in sold-state drives, networking equipment, power supplies, and motherboards.
ACE Award winners will be announced at a ceremony taking place on December 6 at the San Jose Convention Center during ESC Silicon Valley.
