Malvern, Pa. Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. has extended the capacitance/voltage (C/V) values for its 298D series of MicroTan solid tantalum chip capacitors in two small molded package sizes.
Leveraging the multi-array packaging (MAP) assembly technology, the 298D MicroTan capacitors offer high C/V ranges from 1 uF/25V to 47 uF/4V in a 1.60 x 0.85-mm 0603 M-case with a low 0.90-mm maximum profile. In addition, the newly released 0805 P-case package, measuring 2.40x 1.45 mm with a 1.20-mm maximum profile, is touted as the industry's first molded package to offer a capacitance of 220 uF at 4 V.
These devices are suitable for audio filtering and signal processing in mobile phones, digital cameras, and MP3 devices. In addition, the rectangular molded case encapsulation is suitable for high-volume PCB assembly, and the special L-shaped facedown terminations are said to offer better contact to the solder pad than traditional facedown style terminations.
Availability: Samples and production quantities of the extended 298D series are available now with a lead time of eight weeks for larger orders.
