A new series of TANTAMOUNT® surface-mount tantalum chip capacitors will appeal to power-conscious designers due to their very low leakage current ratings.
The TL3 chip capacitors offer DC leakage current as low as 0.005 CV or 0.25µA, whichever is greater. This means for instance that, by substituting the TL3 for capacitors with a higher leakage current, system designers can extend battery run-time in portable devices.
The TL3 capacitors are offered in a moulded package in five standard EIA-535BAAC case codes: A, B, C, D and E.
They are also available in a standard option or an option providing low equivalent series resistance.
Vishay produces TL3 devices with capacitance values ranging from 0.1µF to 470µF and with voltage ratings from 4V DC to 63V DC. Capacitance tolerance is either ±10% or ±20%.
Devices in case codes B, C, D and E are 100% surge-current tested and offer high reliability of 0.5%/1,000 hours, making them ideal for use in products with a long operating lifetime.
