Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. announces its 298D series of MicroTan solid tantalum chip capacitors that offer capacitance-voltage ratings in two small molded package sizes. The 0805 P-case package measures 2.40 mm × 1.45 mm with a 1.20 mm maximum profile. Suitable for audio filtering and signal processing in mobile phones, digital cameras and MP3 devices, the ratings of these capacitors enable more stylish end products by requiring less printed circuit board space and reduced product thickness. The devices’ rectangular molded case encapsulation is appropriate for high-volume PCB assembly, and the L-shaped facedown terminations offer better contact to the solder pad than traditional facedown style terminations.
