For avionics and aerospace applications, the T16 electrolytic capacitors provide all the advantages of Vishay’s SuperTan® series devices, while offering improved reverse voltage and high vibration capability.

The T16 offers enhanced performance with a reverse voltage of 1.5 V at + 85 °C and a high-reliability design with improved vibration (sine: 20 g; random: 27.7 g), thermal shock, and mechanical shock capabilities. This initial release will feature high capacitances from 150 μF to 680 μF in the D case code, and capacitance tolerances of ± 20% standard at 120 Hz and + 25 °C, with tolerances of ±10% ±5% available.

The wet tantalum capacitors are optimized for timing, filtering, energy hold-up, and pulse power applications in power supplies and space and avionics equipment.

The T16 series operates over a temperature range of - 55 °C to + 85 °C, to + 125 °C with voltage derating, and provides low ESR down to 0.70 Ω at 120 Hz and + 25 °C. The capacitors feature standard tin/lead terminations, with RoHS-compliant 100 % tin terminations available, and are offered with standard and extended ratings.
