Vishay reduces lead-time for MIL-Qualified
In a move to meet the increasing demand for faster time-to-market
for equipment manufacturers, Vishay Intertechnology, Inc.
has announced new shorter lead times for its CDR MIL-qualified
multilayer ceramic capacitors (MLCCs). For mission-critical
military and aerospace applications, Vishay's customers
can now begin assembly with these devices in as little as
Manufactured and tested per MIL-PRF-55681 (CAGE CODE SHV71),
the company's type CDR devices are available with BP and
BX dielectrics and are offered in 10 case sizes ranging
from 0805 to 1825. The devices offer a capacitance range
from 1.0 pF to 470 nF and voltages from 50 VDC to 100 VDC.
Vishay's CDR MLCCs are manufactured in Noble Metal Electrode
Technology (NME) with a wet build process, and offer an
operating temperature range of - 55 °C to + 125 °C.
The devices feature a variety of termination options, including
tin/lead (codes "Z" and "U") and lead
(Pb)-free terminations (codes "W," "Y,"
"M"). The capacitors are compliant to RoHS Directive
2002/95/EC and halogen-free according to the IEC 61249-2-21
Production quantities of the CDR MIL-qualified MLCCs are
available now, with lead times of six to 11 weeks.
