MALVERN, Pa. - Nov. 30, 2017 - Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today announced that its T59 series of vPolyTan™ multi-anode polymer surface-mount chip capacitors has been chosen as a 2017 ACE (Annual Creativity in Electronics) Awards finalist. The awards program, sponsored by EE Times and EDN magazine, recognizes "the best of the best in today's electronics industry, including the hottest new products, start-up companies, design teams, executives, and more." In the category of Passive, Interconnects and Electromechanical, the T59 series was selected as one of three finalists.
Vishay's T59 series capacitors deliver up to 25 % better volumetric efficiency than similar devices to provide the industry's highest capacitance density, which in turn allows designers to reduce component counts, save PCB space, and lower overall solution costs. For example, their capacitance of 150 µF at 30 V is three times higher than the closest competing device. In addition, the capacitors' patented multi-array packaging (MAP) ensures ultra low ESR from 25 mΩ to 150 mΩ at +25 °C and 100 kHz.
Available in the molded EE (7343-43) case code, the devices offer capacitance from 15 µF to 470 µF, with capacitance tolerance of ± 20 %, and overvoltage ratings up to 75 V. The T59 series features ripple current up to 3.1 A at 100 kHz and an operating temperature range of -55 °C to +105 °C. The capacitors are optimized for decoupling, smoothing, filtering, and energy storage applications in solid-state drives, networking equipment, power supplies, and motherboards.
ACE Award winners will be announced at a ceremony taking place on Dec. 6 at the San Jose Convention Center during ESC Silicon Valley.
