SMT Aluminum Capacitors survive severe reflow conditions.

Press Release Summary:

Offered in sizes from 10 x 10 x 10 mm to 18 x 18 X 21 mm, 140 CRH devices are rated to +125°C and 150 CRZ devices feature 0.035 W max impedance at 100 kHz and ripple current to 1,756 mA. Both types of polarized aluminum electrolytic capacitors feature non-solid, self-healing electrolyte. Charge- and discharge-proof products, qualified to AEC-Q200, meet IPC/JEDEC J-STD-020 soldering guidelines and are suited for filtering, smoothing, buffering, and voltage decoupling applications.

Original Press Release:

Vishay Extends 140 CRH and 150 CRZ Series Surface-Mount Aluminum Capacitors with New Devices that Meet IPC/JEDEC J-STD-020 Soldering Guidelines

Offered in Seven Case Sizes, New 140 CRH Devices Provide High-Temperature Performance to + 125 °C, While 150 CRZ Capacitors Feature Very Low "Z" to 0.035 W and High Ripple Current to 1,756 mA

MALVERN, PENNSYLVANIA - Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today announced that its high-temperature 140 CRH and low-impedance 150 CRZ series of surface-mount aluminum capacitors have been extended with new devices that meet the rigorous IPC/JEDEC J-STD-020 soldering guidelines for severe reflow conditions.

The new capacitors offer the most severe reflow soldering profile available in seven case sizes, ranging from 10 mm by 10 mm by 10 mm to the larger 18 mm by 18 mm by 21 mm. The 140 CRH devices released today provide high-temperature performance to + 125 °C, while the 150 CRZ capacitors feature a very low "Z," or maximum impedance at 100 kHz, of 0.035 W and a ripple current to 1,756 mA.

As polarized aluminum electrolytic capacitors with a non-solid, self-healing electrolyte, the AEC-Q200-qualified devices are ideally suited for filtering, smoothing, buffering, and voltage decoupling applications. Typical end products will include automotive power trains and chassis electronics; industrial drives, automation, and equipment for renewable energy; SMPS units; domestic appliances and building control; and telecom equipment.

The RoHS-compliant 140 CRH and 150 CRZ capacitors are charge- and discharge-proof, so there is no peak current limitation. For vibration-proof performance, the devices are offered in 4-pin and 6-pin versions.
