Vishay Intertechnology, a manufacturer of semiconductors and electronic components, has introduced a new wet tantalum capacitor approved to the new DSCC Drawing 10011.

Vishay’s new DSCC 10011 device features a capacitance to 72,000 microfarads in the A, B, and C case codes. The 10011 features a glass-to-metal hermetic seal, operates over a temperature range of – 55 to + 85 degree centigrade, to + 125 degree centigrade with voltage derating, and provides ESR down to 0.035 ohms at 1kHz, the company said.

The company claimed that the device combines the inherent reliability of wet tantalum with the capacitance stability of solid tantalum to eliminate circuit impedance restrictions and increase capacitance ratings.

Housed in an all-tantalum, hermetically sealed case, and manufactured to withstand high stress and hazardous environments, the new capacitor provides a double seal for performance in low-voltage filtering and energy storage applications for military and aerospace systems including weapon systems, radars, transponders, and power supplies, the company added.

The device offers capacitances from 1100 to 72,000 microfarads over a voltage range of 25V to 125V, and capacitance tolerances of 20 % standard at 120Hz and + 25 degree centigrade.

By providing designers with a new standard for capacitance in a single device, the new capacitor enables reduction of capacitor or component count, lowers the amount of board space required, and simplifies the overall manufacturing and assembly process, according to the company.

Vishay said that samples and production quantities of the new 10011 wet tantalum capacitor are available with lead times of eight to 10 weeks for larger orders.
