We’re very excited to be able to offer these extremely high capacitance values, at a time when pricing and availability of components in this capacitance range remains an ongoing concern.

Manufacturers looking for a potential replacement for the high capacitance values typically found in Tantalum, Aluminum Electrolytic and Polymer Film Capacitors have a new alternative. Venkel Ltd. recently began offering 150uF Ceramic Chip Capacitors and 220uF Ceramic Chip Capacitors to customers worldwide. The company, a supplier of Surface Mount Capacitors, Resistors, Inductors and other Surface Mount Components, extends its Ceramic Capacitor product line with the addition of the two 1210 size values.
“In addition to very high capacitance values, these parts also exhibit very low impedance and ESR. With perpetual Tantalum Capacitor availability concerns, an MLCC, if it can be suitably used as a replacement, is an attractive option to many customers. We’re encouraging our customers to investigate whether they can replace Tantalum Capacitors, Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors or Polymer Film Capacitors with these more desirable Ceramic Capacitors. In many instances, you may be able to use the 150uF or 220uF in place of higher values due to the low Impedance,” said Nathan Baily, Director of Engineering.
Both values, 150uF and 220uF, are in a 1210 case size, X5R dielectric, 6.3V, ±20% tolerance and are available for immediate shipment. Samples are also available for evaluation. Venkel part numbers are C1210X5R6R3-157MNE (150uF) and C1210X5R6R3-227MNE (220uF).
Mr. Bailey continued, “We’re very excited to be able to offer these extremely high capacitance values, at a time when pricing and availability of components in this capacitance range remains an ongoing concern. We’re hopeful that another option in this area will prove helpful for manufacturers.”
