Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. has released a tantalum-cased, hermetically sealed wet tantalum capacitor that is reportedly the industry's first qualified to the MIL-PRF-39006/33 specification. 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 released today features a wide voltage range from 50 V to 100 V, high capacitance from 220 mmF to 680 mmF, 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 excellent reverse voltage, vibration, and thermal shock performance. Optimized for timing, filtering, energy hold-up, and pulse power applications in power supplies for space and avionics equipment, the M39006/33 allows 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, with lead times of 10 weeks for large orders. Pricing for U.S. delivery only starts at $85 per piece.
