Vishay Intertechnology introduced two new series of aluminum polymer capacitors featuring conductive technology. For portable electronics and consumer and telecom applications, Vishay BCcomponents 180 CPS and 181 CPL series devices provide higher ripple current, lower impedance, and longer useful life than standard aluminum capacitors.

Offered in a variety of case sizes from 5.3 mm by 5.3 mm by 5.7 mm to 10.4 mm by 10.4 mm by 12.6 mm, 180 CPS and 181 CPL series capacitors offer long useful life of 2500 h and 5000 h at +105 °C, respectively. The devices deliver ripple current to 6100 mA and impedance down to 9 m?.

The RoHS-compliant, surface-mount capacitors can support automatic placement and high-temperature reflow soldering according to JEDEC. Samples and production quantities of the 180 CPS and 181 CPL are available now, with lead times of 8 to 10 weeks for large orders. Pricing for U.S. delivery ranges from $0.40 per piece to $1.00 per piece, depending on case size.
