Greenville, S.C. KEMET Corp. has introduced a new high-grade, commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) T497series of tantalum capacitors. These new surface-mount types are available in non-standard case sizes corresponding to the Military CWR09, CWR19 and CWR 29 styles.
Suitable for high-end industrial power supplies, military designs, portable communication systems and other critical filtering and decoupling applications, the T497 COTS tantalum capacitors offer a capacitance range from 0.10 to 150 μF with voltage ratings from 4 to 25 volts.
The T497 capacitors also offer a low profile (0.0500-in. height for case size A through D) which is compatible with PCMCIA type II applications. It has been designed with very low leakage current making it suitable for self-contained or depleting power source (battery) products, said the company.
The T497 is offered with a COTS option with special testing available for surge current, Weibull grading, and 100% x-ray. The series also offers many options that allow for customization. These capacitors are available in RoHS-compliant versions and in standard tin/lead (Sn/Pb) (5% lead minimum) terminations.
The T497 capacitors are priced at approximately $2.00 to $10.00. Delivery is from stock to nine weeks.
