Vishay Extends 298D MicroTan™ Series with Industry's First Solid Tantalum Chip Capacitors to Offer 220-µF/4-V CV Rating in Molded 0805 Case Size
Devices Feature 1-µF/25-V to 47-µF/4-V CV Ratings in 0603 Case Size For Portable Electronics
MALVERN, PENNSYLVANIA — August 8, 2007 — Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today announced that it has extended its 298D series of MicroTan™ solid tantalum chip capacitors to offer industry-best capacitance-voltage ratings in two small molded package sizes.
Leveraging the patented MAP (multi-array packaging) assembly technology, Vishay’s 298D MicroTan capacitors have been extended to offer high capacitance-voltage ranges from 1 µF/25 V to 47 µF/4 V in the compact 1.60-mm x 0.85-mm 0603 M-case with a low 0.90-mm maximum profile.
The newly released 0805 P-case package, measuring 2.40 mm x 1.45 mm with a 1.20-mm maximum profile, is the industry’s first molded package to offer a capacitance of 220 µF/4 V.
Ideal for audio filtering and signal processing in mobile phones, digital cameras, and MP3 devices, the ratings of the 298D capacitors enable more stylish end products by requiring less printed circuit board space and reduced product thickness.
The devices’ rectangular molded case encapsulation is ideal for high-volume PCB assembly, and the special L-shaped facedown terminations offer better contact to the solder pad than traditional facedown style terminations.
Samples and production quantities of the extended 298D series of MicroTan solid tantalum chip capacitors are available now, with a lead-time of eight weeks for larger orders.
