Vishay Intertechnology (Malvern, PA) introduced a new series of molded, automotive-grade MicroTan solid tantalum chip capacitors. For the next generation of space-constrained automotive electronics, the TP8 is the first AEC-Q200-qualified tantalum capacitor series to employ a high-volumetrically efficient packaging solution to enable industry-high capacitance-voltage ratings in small case sizes down to 0603. Features include:
- Capacitance-voltage ratings from 1.0 µF-40 V to 100 µF-6.3 V.
- Industry-best values such as 1.0 µF-20 V in the 0603 case size and 100 µF-6.3 V in the 1206 case.
- Standard capacitance tolerances of ±10 % and ±20 %.
- Operating temperature range of -55 °C to +85 °C, or +125 °C.
