Aluminum Capacitors operate at temperatures to +105°C.

Press Release Summary:

Designed for surface mounting on high-density PCBs, ECL Series polarized aluminum electrolytic capacitors feature non-solid, self-healing electrolyte, and heat-resistant pad and molded base plate for additional stability and protection. They offer low impedance Z down to 90 mW at 100 kHz, ripple current of 670 mA at +105°C, and capacitance range of 10-1,500 µF over voltage range of 6.3-100 V. RoHS-compliant units are available in 6 case sizes from 6.3 x 5.8 to 12.5 x 13.5 mm.

Original Press Release:

Vishay Releases New ECL Series of SMD Aluminum Capacitors with Z as Low as 90 mOhm, High Capacitance Values up to 1500 µF, and High Ripple Currents to 670 mA

Devices Offer High-Temperature Operation to +105 °C in Six Case Sizes

MALVERN, PENNSYLVANIA - Nov. 5, 2008 - Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today announced the release of a new series of surface-mount aluminum capacitors that offers high-temperature operation +105 °C, low impedance values, and high capacitances and ripple currents.

Designed for surface mounting on high-density PCBs, the new ECL series of polarized aluminum electrolytic capacitors features a non-solid, self-healing electrolyte. For high-temperature operation, a heat-resistant pad and molded base plate provide additional stability and protection.

Available in six case sizes, ranging from 6.3 mm by 5.8 mm to the larger 12.5 mm by 13.5 mm (width by height), the devices are optimized for inverter circuits and filtering, smoothing, and buffering applications in industrial systems and consumer electronics, such as audio equipment, flashes, and computers.

For enhanced performance and reliability, the capacitors offer a very low impedance Z down to 90 mW at 100 kHz, a high rated ripple current of 670 mA at +105 °C, and a capacitance range from 10 µF to 1500 µF over a voltage range of 6.3 V to 100 V.

Specified according to IEC 60384-4/EN 130300, the ECL devices feature a long life of 2000 hours at +105 °C. Supplied in blister tape-on-reel packaging, the RoHS-compliant capacitors are compatible with reflow soldering and automatic insertion machines.

Samples and production quantities of the new ECL series are available now.
