November 20, 2020 Perry Cohen

Vishay Intertechnology released a new series of automotive-grade miniature aluminum electrolytic capacitors that couple high ripple currents up to 3.8A with temperature operations up to +105 °C. It also features a long life up to 10,000h at the mentioned +105 °C.

The Vishay BCcomponents 170 RVZ series capacitors, unlike prior solutions, offer low impedance and 10 % to 15 % higher ripple current. The devices are AEC-Q200 qualified and range in sizes from 10 mm by 12 mm up to 18 mm to 40 mm.

Insulated within a blue sleeve, the series offers rated voltages up to 63 V, capacitance from 100 µF to 6800 µF, and low impedance.
