Giving designers a new source of small-footprint capacitors for mobile electronic systems, Vishay has released the new 298D MicroTan™ surface mount capacitor. These capacitors provide capacitance values from 1µF at 16V to 47µF at 4V in the small 0603 and 0805 footprints, requiring less printed circuit board space, thus enabling smaller, more stylish end products.
Ideal for signal processing and power management applications in mobile phones, digital cameras, and MP3 devices, the 298D capacitors offer a capacitance tolerance of ±20%, voltage ratings from 4WVDC to 16WVDC, low ESR, and 0.01 CV DC leakage values.
These capacitors are also rated to operate above the temperature range of -55°C to +85°C, and can be operated to +125°C with voltage derating. Offering lead (Pb)-free and RoHS-compliant terminations, the 298D capacitors are provided in 8mm tape and reel packaging available per EIA-481-1 and reeling per the IEC 286-3.7" (178mm) standard.
