Malvern, Pa. Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. has introduced a new series of low-profile, high-capacitance solid tantalum chip capacitors packaged in a compact P case size that couples a small size with high reliability for greater functionality in handheld devices.
Part of the Vishay Sprague Tantamount product line, the new low-profile 572D series capacitors are designed for input/output buffering, dc/dc conversion, and noise suppression applications in PDAs, cell phones, LCD display drives, and other handheld and portable appliances.
Measuring 0.087 x 0.049 x 0.039 in. (2.2 x 1.25 x 1.0 mm), the new 572D capacitors are available in capacitance ratings of 10 μF at 10 WVdc and 33 μF at 6.3 WVdc with standard tolerances of 10% and 20%. They are conformal-coated and are available in 8-mm and 12-mm tape-and-reel packaging per EIA4811 and reeling per IEC 2863. They are specified for an operating temperature range of -55°C to 85°C, or up to 125°C with voltage derating.
The 572D series capacitors feature single-sided lead-free terminations that enable direct placement under grounding shield applications. In addition, the unique uniform geometry aids in accurate placement and more reliable performance, said the company.
Samples and production quantities of the new 572D capacitors are available now, with lead times of eight to ten weeks for larger orders. Pricing for U.S. delivery ranges from $0.12 to $0.15.
