Wet electrolytic tantalum capacitor serves 230°C operation

AVX TWA-X Series high-temperature wet electrolytic tantalum capacitor is designed for use at 230°C and provides a high-capacitance cathode system that achieves high CV performance in standard case sizes and a hermetically sealed, welded tantalum can and header assembly that provides robust resistance against mechanical shock and high-frequency vibration. Suitable for use in military, aerospace, industrial, and oil drilling equipment, devices are also mechanically tested in accordance with MIL-STD-202 and provide the highest capacitance available for the longest duration — up to 400μF for 500 hours of operation at 230°C. Devices are available in DSCC case size T4 (AVX case size “E”) with two initial ratings: 400μF/100V and 330μF/125V.
