Vishay Intertechnology Inc. has released a tantalum-cased wet tantalum capacitor with a glass-to-tantalum hermetic seal approved to Defence Logistics Agency (DLA) drawing 13017. Aimed at avionics and aerospace systems, the device claims to be the industry's first DLA-approved wet tantalum capacitor to combine a reverse voltage of 1.5V at 85°C with improved vibration (sine: 50g; random: 27.7g) and thermal shock (300 cycles) capabilities.

Providing all the advantages of Vishay's SuperTan series devices—while offering improved reverse voltage for higher performance and enhanced vibration and thermal shock capabilities for increased reliability—the 13017 electrolytic capacitor is optimised for timing, filtering, energy hold-up and pulse power applications in power supplies for space and avionics equipment.

Offered in the axial T1, T2, T3 and T4 case sizes, the device features voltage from 25-125V, high capacitance from 10-680µF, and capacitance tolerance of ±10 per cent and ±20 per cent standard at 120Hz and 25°C. The 13017 operates over a temperature range of -55°C to 85°C, to 125°C with voltage derating, and provides low ESR down to 0.70Ω at 120Hz and 25°C.

The capacitor features standard tin/lead (Sn/Pb) terminations, with RoHS-compliant 100 per cent tin terminations available.

Samples and production quantities of the 13017 are available with lead times of 10 weeks for larger orders.
