Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today announced that the company’s TP8 and T42 solid tantalum chip capacitors, T18 wet tantalum capacitors, and IHLP-2525CZ-8A low-profile, high-current inductor have been selected for Electronic Design’s “Top 101 Components.” The annual list compiles the 101 components from the previous year most popular among readers of the magazine’s Products of the Week newsletter. #20 – TP8 MicroTan ® Solid Tantalum Chip CapacitorsFor the next generation of space-constrained automotive electronics, the Vishay Sprague AEC-Q200-qualified TP8 employs a high-volumetrically efficient packaging solution to enable industry-best capacitance-voltage ratings. The TP8 series offers designers a variety of previously unavailable small case sizes — including the 0603, 0805, and 0906 — with the same capacitance and voltage ratings found in larger devices.
