Vishay Intertechnology Inc. announced that it has added the RoHS-compliant 153 CRV series to its range of vertical SMD aluminum electrolytic capacitors. Devices in the 153 CRV series are compatible with Pb-free soldering processes and offer long useful operating life from 200,000 hours at 40C, enabling designers to save space without sacrificing performance or reliability.

The new capacitors are charge- and discharge-proof, and will withstand surge voltages up to 1.15 times rated voltage and reverse voltages up to 1V, all applied under IEC 60384-18 specifications. In addition, a vertical SMD construction ensures minimum board space.

The new 153 CRV is designed for applications such as filtering, smoothing, buffering and decoupling in RoHS-compliant assemblies, including power supply and conversion, industrial controls, domestic appliances, automotive systems, and telecom equipment. The devices' long useful operating life makes the 153 CRV especially valuable in zero-maintenance or remotely located equipment such as cellular base stations, Vishay said.

The new Vishay BCcomponents 153 CRV polarized aluminum electrolytic capacitors are available in case sizes with measurements ranging from 4-by-4-by-5.3mm to 10-by-10-by-10mm. Standard capacitance values are from 0.47&microlF to 470&microl F, with voltage ratings from 6.3V to 50V. Minimum operating life is 2,000 to 3,000 hours at 105C, corresponding to 200,000 or 300,000 hours at 40C, respectively, depending on the case size.
