We’ve expanded the temperature capability of our popular T598 capacitor series, a first-to-market tantalum polymer surface mount solution. These capacitors uniquely address the stringent requirements and new challenges presented by megatrend applications in automotive Advanced Driver Assistant Systems (ADAS), autonomous driving, infotainment, supercomputing, and mobility services. T598 automotive grade polymer capacitors combine multiple high-performance characteristics including high capacitance, high voltage ratings, single digit equivalent series resistance (ESR), class-leading ripple performance, and ultra-extended life to truly enable the development and deployment of exciting and revolutionary technologies.

AEC-200 qualified T598 devices have excellent volumetric efficiency, high capacitance values up to 470µF, voltage ranges between 2.5 VDC - 50 VDC, and new single-digit ESR, meaning that you can use less components on your design. Our new capacitors can help designers preserve vital board real estate while achieving cost savings in the process.

Robust and stable performance to 2,000 hours at temperatures of 125˚C equate to an ultra-extended mission profile of approximately 15 years. These high performance levels meet the requirements for ADAS vehicle applications such as blind spot detection, adaptive cruise control and emergency brake assist, to safety systems including airbag occupant detection, alarm systems, and electronic stability control.
