Automotive grade capacitors aid design flexibility
Two new series of Automotive Grade, surface-mount aluminum electrolytic capacitors that combine high voltages up to 450V with operating temperatures up to +125 °C have been introduced by Vishay Intertechnology.
They offer useful life up to 6,000 hours for automotive and industrial applications.
The high voltage range of Vishay BCcomponents 152 CME and 192 CTX series capacitors provides designers with greater design flexibility, while their high temperature capabilities and extended useful life increase reliability for demanding applications in harsh environments.
As polarized aluminum electrolytic capacitors with a non-solid electrolyte, the AEC-Q200 qualified devices are suited for smoothing, filtering, and buffering in power supplies and portable chargers for electric vehicles and industrial equipment.
The 152 CME and 192 CTX series offer capacitance values from 2.2µF to 33µF in seven case sizes ranging from 10mm by 10mm by 10mm to 18mm by 18mm by 21mm.
The RoHS-compliant capacitors offer charge- and discharge-proof performance with no peak current limitation, allow for lead (Pb)-free reflow soldering in accordance with JEDEC J-STD-020, and offer vibration-proof performance in 4- and 6-pin versions.
Samples and production quantities of the 152 CME and 192 CTX series are available now, with lead times of six to 10 weeks.
