Vishay 552D Organic Polymer Capacitors


With their broad capacitance range and no ignition failure mode, the new 552D capacitors may be used in applications for which standard tantalum devices are not well suited. Low ESR values reduce power consumption, and the conformal coated construction enables the manufacture of thinner, more space-efficient end products. Each capacitor is 100% surge-current tested with Sn/Pb (tin/lead) and Pb (lead)-free terminations available. The series is rated for an operating temperature range of -55°C to +105°C.


• Deliver low equivalent series resistance (ESR) values across a broad capacitance range extending from 100 µF to 2,200 µF with standard capacitance tolerance of +/-20%
• Maximum ESR ratings at 100 kHz range from 25 mOhms to 90 mOhms, and the devices' voltage ratings range from 4 WVDC to 6.3 WVDC
• Wide variety of sizes and rating that simplify the design of compact electronic systems
• Smallest (M case_ measures only 0.138 in by 0.110 in (3.5 mm by 2.8 mm) with a 0.047 in (1.2 mm) maximum height profile
• Largest (x case) measures 0.575 in by 0.290 in (14.5 mm by 7.37 mm) with a 0.079 in (2.0 mm) maximum height profile
