High-Temperature Wet Tantalum Capacitors Now Offer the World's Highest CV/cc 125V part at 200°C - AVX TWA-Y Series

Kyocera AVX, a leading global manufacturer of advanced electronic components engineered to accelerate technological innovation and build a better future, expanded its TWA-Y Series high-temperature, COTS-Plus wet electrolytic tantalum capacitors with the addition of a new 470µF/125V code proven to 200°C life testing procedures.

The New 470µF TWA-Y Series Capacitor

Currently available in a DLA T4-size case, the new 470µF TWA-Y Series capacitor offers the world’s highest CV/cc at 200°C and 125V and is designed to withstand continuous operation at 200°C for up to 2,000 hours with applicable derating. It also features a leaded, cylindrical, and hermetically sealed construction field-proven to ruggedly withstand shock and vibration and is an ideal drop-in replacement for existing M39006-style wet tantalum capacitors used for input and output filtering and energy storage and discharge in high-temperature industrial and downhole oil-drilling applications.

Why Choose Kyocera AVX TWA-Y Series?

Unlike conventional wet electrolytic tantalum capacitors, Kyocera AVX’s TWA-Y Series capacitors employ a unique cathode system that enables the highest CV/cc performance available on the market at 200°C at 125V in standard DLA case sizes spanning T1–T4. Featuring a hermetically sealed, welded tantalum can and header assembly and an optional insulation sleeve,

TWA-Y Series capacitors ruggedly withstand harsh mechanical shock and high-frequency vibration per MIL-PRF-39006 and MIL-STD-202 (method 204, test condition “D” and method 213, test condition “I”) and exhibit stable electrical parameters over the full range of operating temperatures, extending from -55°C to +200°C.

A Word from Kyocera AVX

“Kyocera AVX is proud to offer the new 470µF/125V TWA-Y Series wet tantalum capacitors, which provide the world’s highest capacitance and voltage value (CV/cc) at 200°C,” said Allen Mayar, product marketing manager at KYOCERA AVX. “Our TWA-Y Series capacitors are produced and qualified at our highly accredited facility in Lanskroun, Czech Republic, and deliver the high-reliability, long-lifetime performance crucial to satisfying even the most demanding requirements of harsh-environment industrial and downhole oil applications.”

TWA-Y Series Specification Range

TWA-Y Series high-temperature, COTS-Plus wet electrolytic tantalum capacitors are currently available in four case sizes (DLA T1–T4) with capacitance values extending from 10–4,700µF (±10% or ±20% tolerance) and rated voltages spanning 15–125V.

They are supplied with either SnPb 60/40 or lead-free-compatible and RoHS-compliant matte tin terminations in a tray pack, and current lead-time for the series is 10–14 weeks

A Little about DMTL & Kyocera AVX

DMTL is a fully franchised, authorised distributor for Kyocera AVX, stocking a wide selection of electronic components and continue to be Kyocera AVX's top design distributor in the UK!

DMTL have enjoyed an extremely close and successful relationship with Kyocera AVX for over 30 years.

Commencing as a direct customer in 1988, DMTL was then appointed as Kyocera AVX's UK Design Distributor in 1996.

Of note is the fact that for the last 5 years, DMTL has continued, by some margin, to be Kyocera AVX’s Top Design Distributor for the UK, by value, each year.. This being a clear indicator of the strength of Kyocera AVX’s technical support, in their partnership with DMTL.
