Tantalum Military Capacitors Meet Stringent Testing Standards
KEMET has announced an expansion of its CWR 09, 11, 19, and 29 Series of tantalum capacitors to fully meet the requirements of MIL-PRF-55365 T-level testing. KEMET’S CWR Series is designed for use by military/aerospace customers in high reliability applications. The capacitors already meet the standard requirements of MIL-PRF-55365, including surge current options, Weibull grading, and termination options that include gold plating, hot solder dip, solder fused, and solder plating. The expanded testing under T- level includes: Single date lot coding, C level Weibull grading minimum, C level surge current, Destructive Physical Analysis (DPA), three sigma rescreen for Equivalent Series Resistance (ESR) and DC Leakage current (DCL) , 100% single-plane x-ray, and Group A and C inspection on each lot.
