Vishay introduces the 152 CME and 192 CTX series high voltage, Automotive Grade aluminum capacitors.

Vishay Intertechnology introduced two new series of Automotive Grade, surface-mount aluminum electrolytic capacitors. They combine high voltages up to 450 V with operating temperatures up to +125 °C and life up to 6,000 hours for automotive and industrial applications.

The high voltage range of Vishay BC components 152 CME and 192 CTX series capacitors provides designers with design flexibility, while their high temperature capabilities and extended useful life increase reliability for demanding applications in harsh environments, according to the company. 

As polarized aluminum electrolytic capacitors with a non-solid electrolyte, the AEC-Q200 qualified devices are suited for smoothing, filtering, and buffering in power supplies and portable chargers for electric vehicles and industrial equipment.

The 152 CME and 192 CTX series offer capacitance values from 2.2 µF to 33 µF in seven case sizes ranging from 10 mm by 10 mm by 10 mm to 18 mm by 18 mm by 21 mm. The RoHS-compliant capacitors offer charge- and discharge-proof performance with no peak current limitation, allow for lead (Pb)-free reflow soldering in accordance with JEDEC J-STD-020, and offer vibration-proof performance in 4- and 6-pin versions.

Samples and production quantities of the 152 CME and 192 CTX series are available now, with lead times of six to 10 weeks. Pricing for U.S. delivery starts at $0.28 per piece.
