SMD Aluminum Capacitors have long-life (3,000 hr) design.

Press Release Summary:

Comprised of polarized aluminum electrolytic capacitors with non-solid, self-healing electrolyte, 140 CRH series suits filtering, smoothing, buffering, and voltage decoupling applications. Capacitance varies from 10-1.000 µF over 6.3-63 V range, ripple current is rated up to 900 mA at 100 kHz/125°C, and ESR is offered down to 90 mX at 100 kHz. RoHS-compliant series includes 5 case sizes, and those with 12.5 mm dia are available in 4-pin versions for optimal vibration resistance.

Original Press Release:

Vishay Extends 140 CRH Series of SMD Aluminum Capacitors to Provide High Capacitance Values up to 1000 µF, High Ripple Currents to 900mA at 125°C, and Low ESR Down to 90mohm

Devices Offer Long Life to 3000 Hours at +125°C and 4-Pin Versions For High Vibration Capability

MALVERN, PENNSYLVANIA - August 1, 2008 - In a move to meet the demands for performance and reliability in automotive and industrial systems, Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today announced that it has extended the capabilities of its 140 CRH series of surface-mount aluminum capacitors to offer very high capacitance values and ripple currents.

A polarized aluminum electrolytic capacitor with a non-solid, self-healing electrolyte, the 140 CRH is ideally suited for filtering, smoothing, buffering, and voltage decoupling applications in automotive and industrial systems for high ambient temperatures up to 125°C.

Offering enhanced performance and reliability, the devices feature a capacitance range of 10µF to 1000µF over a voltage range of 6.3V to 63V, a high ripple current up to 900mA at 100kHz/125°C, and ESR down to 90mW at 100kHz. The capacitors are available in five case sizes, ranging from 8mm by 8mm by 10mm to the larger 12.5mm by 12.5mm by 16mm.

For high vibration capability, 140 CRH capacitors with 12.5-mm diameters are available in 4-pin versions, with 4-pin versions of 10-mm devices available on request. The capacitors feature a long life up to 3000 hours at +125°C.

The RoHS-compliant devices are charge- and discharge-proof, so there is no peak current limitation. The capacitors operate over a broad temperature range from -55°C to +125°C.

Samples and production quantities of the 140 CRH SMD aluminum capacitors are available now, with lead times of 15 weeks for larger orders.
