Intertechnology Inc. introduced the new TL3 series of TANTAMOUNT surface-mount
tantalum molded chip capacitors, which it claims are the industry's first such
devices to offer DC leakage current (DCL) as low as 0.005 CV, a capability that
enables system designers to extend battery run-time in portable devices.
with a wide range of capacitance and voltage values, devices in the TL3 series
are optimized for a wide variety of demanding applications that require long
product life, such as battery-operated equipment, portable instrumentation,
tire-pressure monitoring, medical instruments, local power supplies, hand-held instruments, and battery backup supplies.
capacitors are offered in a molded package in five standard EIA-535BAAC case
codes — A, B, C, D, and E — with standard and low ESR options. The devices
offer a capacitance range from 0.1 µF to 470 µF over voltage ratings from 4 VDC
to 63 VDC, with capacitance tolerances of ± 10 % and ± 20 %. Case codes B, C,
D, and E are 100 % surge current tested and offer improved reliability of 0.5 %
/ 1,000 hours. The devices are available with RoHS-compliant tin terminations
U.S. delivery begins at $1.00.
Samples and production quantities are available now, with lead times of eight
weeks for larger orders.
