Vishay Intertechnology has released a new tantalum-cased, hermetically sealed wet tantalum capacitor that is the industry”s first qualified to the MIL-PRF-39006/33 specification. According to the company for designers, the M39006/33 (Style CLR93) offers established reliability for critical avionics and aerospace systems.
Offered in the axial T4 case size, the Vishay Sprague device features a wide voltage range from 50 V to 100 V, high capacitance from 220 µF to 680 µF, capacitance tolerance of ± 10 % and ± 20 % standard, and maximum ripple current of 2750 mA. The M39006/33 operates over a temperature range of -55 °C to +85 °C, to +125 °C with voltage derating.
The capacitor combines its high capacitance and established reliability with reverse voltage, vibration, and thermal shock performance. Optimised for timing, filtering, energy hold-up, and pulse power applications in power supplies for space and avionics equipment, the M39006/33 will allow designers to incorporate fewer capacitors into these products to lower overall system costs.
Samples and production quantities of the M39006/33 capacitor are available now.
