A new range of tantalum capacitors is designed for applications that require bulk capacitance to boost transmitter power. Examples include PCMCIA/USB wireless express cards, smart meters, GPS transmitters, and GSM high-speed wireless data handling. Two case sizes of tantalum products are available. Case sizes "6" (14.5 x 7.5 x 2.0 mm) and "4" (7.3 x 6.1 x 2.0 mm) are rated from 1000 to 3300 F (3.3 mF) with a voltage rating of 4 to 10 V. Their maximum case height of 2 mm makes the PulseCap series ideal for reduced-height applications. In addition, the "undertab" termination style replaces traditional "J" leads with terminations that do not protrude outside of the outline of the case. This approach increases volumetric efficiency while allowing parts to be positioned closely together. The PulseCap devices can withstand a soldering profile of 3X reflow temperature at +260C. They operate from -55 to +125C. P&A: Starting at $1.80 each; Typical lead time is 14 to 20 weeks.
