Tantalum Caps Shrink ESR Ratings

Tantalum Caps Shrink ESR Ratings

With ESR specs as low as 80 m?, the TPS Series tantalum capacitors are suitable for smoothing and filtering on 3.3V power rails. Allegedly an industry first, the series offers low ESR 330 µF/6.3V parts in a C case size (6032-26). According to the company, the only low ESR option within this capacitance/voltage ratio was only available in the larger D case size (7343-31). Other features include a maximum direct leakage current of 19.8 μA, maximum dissipation factor at 120 Hz of 12%, and an operating temperature range from -55°C to +125°C. AVX CORP. Myrtle Beach, SC.
