SMDY1 Capacitor Achieves World Electronics Achievement Award

Vishay BETA AwardsVishay Intertechnology’s SMDY1 capacitor series has received a 2022 AspenCore World Electronics Achievement Award in the High Performance Passive / Discrete Devices category.

The devices are the industry’s first surface-mount ceramic disc capacitors to offer a Y1 rating of 500 VAC and 1500 VDC.

With their high Y1 rating, Vishay’s SMDY1 series capacitors are ideal for EMI / RFI filtering in power supplies, solar inverters, smart meters, and LED drivers. Other surface-mount capacitors for EMI suppression only provide Y1 ratings to 300 VAC, with no DC rating. In addition, the SMDY1 series offers industry-high capacitance to 4.7 nF — the closest competing devices only provide capacitance up to 1.5 nF — and higher humidity robustness with a Class IIB humidity grade (in accordance with IEC60384-14 annex I) and a moisture sensitivity level of 2a.

Award winners were recognized at a ceremony held during the Global CEO Summit on Nov. 10 in Shenzhen, China. Kong Hau, Senior R&D Manager of Vishay China, was on hand to accept the award on Vishay’s behalf.
