Miniature Aluminum Capacitors provide increased Design Flexibility & save Board Space
Automotive Grade devices offer high ripple currents up to 3.8 A, operating temperatures to +105 °C, & useful life of 10,000 hours at +105 °C
Vishay Intertechnology introduced a new series of low impedance, Automotive Grade miniature aluminum electrolytic capacitors that provide increased design flexibility & save board space. The capacitors combine high ripple currents up to 3.8 A with high temperature operation to +105 °C and very long useful life up to 10,000 h at +105 °C.
Compared to previous-generation solutions, Vishay BCcomponents 170 RVZ series capacitors offer lower impedance and 10 % to 15 % higher ripple current. This allows designers to utilize fewer components, increasing design flexibility and saving board space. In addition, the AEC-Q200 qualified devices are available in smaller case sizes, ranging from 10 mm by 12 mm up to 18 mm to 40 mm.
Featuring radial leads and a cylindrical aluminum case, insulated with a blue sleeve, the 170 RVZ series offers rated voltages up to 63 V, capacitance from 100 µF to 6800 µF, and low impedance. The capacitors are charge- and discharge-proof.
As polarized aluminum electrolytic capacitors with a non-solid electrolyte, the RoHS-compliant devices are ideally suited for smoothing, filtering, and buffering in switch mode power supplies and DC/DC converters for industrial, automotive, telecommunications, medical, and consumer applications.
