Vishay Intros TR3 Molded Tantalum Chip Capacitors
Vishay Intertechnology Inc. (Malvern, PA) introduced its new TR3 Series molded tantalum chip capacitors that provide high efficiency with ESR values down to 0.035 ?, and maximum ripple current values up to 2.07 A (100 kHz, 470 °F).
Low ESR values allow for more efficient filtering in dc-dc conversion applications, while the devices’ ability to handle high currents is key in microprocessor bulk energy storage applications. The new Vishay Sprague TR3 capacitors are intended for applications in telecom, automotive, computer, industrial, commercial, medical, and avionics end systems. In addition to providing low ESR values and a high ripple current handling capability, the new tantalum capacitors feature a proven solid-tantalum construction that ensures long-term reliability.
