Tantalum Chip Caps Now Available In Z Case Size

Vishay Intertechnology has extended its T55 series of vPolyTan surface-mount polymer tantalum molded chip capacitors with components in the Z case (EIA 7343-19) size. With a 0.1 mm lower height than devices in the standard V case (EIA 7343-20), the capacitors increase package density and enable the design of thinner end products. The devices are optimized for power management, battery decoupling, and energy storage in computers, servers, network infrastructure equipment, solid-state drives, and wireless transceivers.

 

Offered in J, P, A, B, T (low-profile B — 1.2 mm max), D, V, and Z case sizes, the T55 series features a capacitance range from 3.3 µF to 680 µF over voltage ratings from 2.5V to 63V, and a capacitance tolerance of ± 20 %. The capacitors provide ESR specs from 500 mΩ down to 7 mΩ at +25 °C. Capacitance values up to 1,000 µF and ESR values down to 6 mΩ are in development.

Fierce AI Week

Register today for Fierce AI Week - a free virtual event | August 10-12

Advances in AI and Machine Learning are adding an unprecedented level of intelligence to everything through capabilities such as speech processing and image & facial recognition. An essential event for design engineers and AI professionals, Engineering AI sessions during Fierce AI Week explore some of the most innovative real-world applications today, the technological advances that are accelerating adoption of AI and Machine Learning, and what the future holds for this game-changing technology.

 

Operating over a temperature range of -55°C to +105°C, the capacitors offer excellent ripple current rating up to 5.66 AIRMS and provide low internal resistance. Samples and production quantities of the T55 series capacitors in the Z case size are available now, with lead times of 12 to 14 weeks. For more details and specs, peruse the T55 series datasheet.
