In direct response to customers' demand for high specification passive components that can cope with ever-higher temperature ranges whilst remaining reliable, BCcomponents developed the 140 CLH, a new SMD electrolytic capacitor.
The 140 CLH can be used in environments where product reliability must be maintained at temperatures of up to 150°C for short periods (useful life is up to 1500 h at 125°C). Alternatively, the 140 CLH can be used for effective filtering, buffering or smoothing voltages in applications where very long lifetimes at over 10 years at 60°C are required.
As an SMD product, it requires fewer board assembly process steps compared to the equivalent through-hole product. Its high performance in a small case size also means that costs can be reduced by using fewer or smaller capacitors.
