Vishay Intertechnology Releases New T16 Series of Wet Tantalum Capacitors for Avionics and Aerospace Applications
Vishay Intertechnology released new T16 Series of Wet Tantalum Capacitors with glass-to-tantalum hermetic seals. For avionics and aerospace applications, the T16 electrolytic capacitors provide all the advantages of Vishay’s SuperTan® series devices, while offering improved reverse voltage and high vibration capability.
The T16 offers enhanced performance with a reverse voltage of 1.5 V at + 85 °C and a high-reliability design with improved vibration (sine: 20 g; random: 27.7 g), thermal shock, and mechanical shock capabilities. This initial release will feature high capacitances from 150 to 680 microfarads in the D case code, and capacitance tolerances of 20 % standard at 120 Hz and + 25 °C, with tolerances of 10 % and 5 % available.
The wet tantalum capacitors are optimized for timing, filtering, energy hold-up, and pulse power applications in power supplies and space and avionics equipment.
The T16 series operates over a temperature range of – 55 °C to + 85 °C, to + 125 °C with voltage derating, and provides low ESR down to 0.70 ohms at 120 Hz and + 25 °C. The capacitors feature standard tin/lead terminations, with RoHS-compliant 100 % tin terminations available, and are offered with standard and extended ratings. Samples and production quantities of the new T16 wet tantalum capacitors are available now, with lead times of 10 weeks for larger orders.
