EP1 series wet tantalum capacitors

To meet the needs of military and avionics applications, Vishay Intertechnology introduces a new high energy wet tantalum capacitor that delivers the industry’s highest capacitance per voltage rating and case size for this device type. For increased design flexibility, the EP1 is available with radial through-hole or surface-mount terminations, each with a stud mount option.

  • Built on Vishay’s proven SuperTan® technology
  • Industry-leading values include a capacitance of 13,000 µF at 50 V in the A case size, which is 18 % greater than the closest competing device
