Tantalum Surface Mount Low ESR Surge Robust Capacitors (T495 Series)


The low ESR, surge robust T495 series is an important member of KEMET’s tantalum chip family. Designed primarily for output filtering in switch-mode power supplies and DC-to-DC converters, the standard CV T495 values are also an excellent choice for battery to-ground input filter applications. This series builds upon proven technology used for industrial grade tantalum chip capacitors to offer several important advantages: very low ESR, high ripple current capability, excellent capacitance stability, plus improved ability to withstand high inrush currents. These benefits are achieved through a combination of proprietary design, material, and process parameters, as well as high-stress, low impedance electrical conditioning performed prior to screening.

These components are RoHS compliant.
