Vishay Intertechnology Inc. has unveiled a series of chip capacitors that claim to be the industry's first devices to offer DC leakage current (DCL) as low as 0.005CV. The TL3 series of TANTAMOUNT surface-mount tantalum molded devices allows system designers to extend battery run-time in portable devices, said the company.

The TL3 series are optimized for various demanding applications that require long product life. These include battery-operated equipment, portable instrumentation, tire-pressure monitoring, medical instruments, local power supplies, hand-held instruments and battery backup supplies. In addition, the products come in a range of capacitance and voltage values.


The TL3 series offers 0.1-470?F capacitance range.

The capacitors are offered in a molded package in five standard EIA-535BAAC case codesA, B, C, D, and Ewith standard and low ESR options. The devices offer capacitance range from 0.1-470?F over voltage ratings from 4-63VDC, with capacitance tolerances of 10 percent and 20 percent. Case codes B, C, D and E are 100 percent surge current tested and offer improved reliability of 0.5 percent per 1,000 hours. The devices are available with RoHS-compliant tin terminations and are halogen-free.
