VISHAY, represented by Adilam Electronics , has added to its 592D family of low-profile tantalum capacitors.
Part of the Vishay Sprague TANTAMOUNT product line, these new capacitors are designed for low-profile applications, such as wireless GPRS PCMCIA modem cards and cell phones, requiring very high capacitance.
The new devices offer 2200mF capacitance in 2mm case height and 3300µF in 2.5mm case height. The compact, high-capacitance devices enable the design of lighter, thinner wireless products.
The devices' low ESR values help to reduce power consumption. In some applications, these high-capacitance devices may be used to replace several capacitors with lower ratings, allowing designers to conserve board real estate and decrease component count.
