Vishay / BC Components 170 RVZ Radial Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors

Vishay BC Components 170 RVZ Radial Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors are miniature, low-impedance polarized aluminum electrolytic capacitors with a non-solid electrolyte. The 170 RVZ capacitors offer very low impedance, low ESR, high stability, high reliability, and high ripple current capability in smaller case sizes than the 150 RMI series capacitors. These charge and discharge-proof capacitors are AEC-Q200 qualified (automotive grade) and operate in a -40°C to +105°C temperature range. The 170 RVZ capacitors are ideal for smoothing, filtering, and buffing applications and power supplies for industrial, EDP, audio-video, automotive, and telecommunications.
