Molded 0805-size Tantalum Caps Offer Low ESR
Intended for applications in cell phones, digital cameras, MP3 players, and other portable devices, the TR8 series of molded MicroTan tantalum chip capacitors from Vishay Intertechnology provide an ESR value of 0.8O (at 100kHz and 47µF) in the 0805 case size and 1.5O in 0603. RoHS-compliant and halogen-free, the parts have Pb-free, L-shape facedown terminations and are available in capacitance values from 1.0 to 220 µF, with standard capacitance tolerances of ±10% and ±20%. Voltage ratings range from 4 WVDC to 16 WVDC. The operating temperature range for the devices is -55°C to +85°C, or +125°C with voltage derating. The capacitors are available in 8-mm tape and reel packaging per EIA-481-1 and178-mm standard reeling per IEC 286-3.
