Vishay Releases RoHS-Compliant SMD Aluminum Capacitor

May 04, 2006 by Jeff Shepard

Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. has released a new SMD aluminum capacitor that enables operation up to 125 ° C. The new Vishay BCcomponents surface-mount aluminum capacitor is both lead (Pb)-free and solderable under lead (Pb)-free soldering conditions.

The 140 CRH is a polarized aluminum electrolytic capacitor with a non-solid, self-healing electrolyte. It is intended to stabilize output voltages, filter unwanted noise, smooth DC voltage, buffer electrical energy, and decouple superimposed AC ripple current in automotive and industrial systems. The RoHS-compliant capacitor is charge- and discharge-proof, so there is no peak current limitation.

It is rated for capacitance values from 10 microfarads to 680 microfarads over a voltage range of 6.3 V to 63 V, and is available in sizes ranging from 8 mm by 8 mm by 10 mm to the larger 10-mm by 10-mm by 14-mm design. The capacitor's temperature ratings range from -55 ° C to +125 ° C.
