Vishay Intertechnology has introduced a new series of TANTAMOUNT surface-mount solid tantalum molded chip capacitors designed to provide improved performance and reliability in a wide variety of non-life-support medical monitoring and diagnostic instruments for in-home and hospital use. Featuring a robust anode design, the TM3 series is 100 % surge current tested (B, C, D, and E case sizes) and available with Weibull grading and Hi-Rel screening options.
Vishay manufactures the new TM3 series at its Dimona, Israel, manufacturing facility. In addition to being ISO9001-certified, the Dimona plant was recently certified to ISO13485 standards, which outline medical device regulatory requirements for quality management systems and facilitate the requirements needed for medical device regulatory compliance by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
