The major use of polymer aluminum and tantalum capacitors is for low voltage consumer electronics. The development of conductive polymer dispersions has extended the voltage range of polymer capacitors up to 125 V in the last years and opened the door for high reliability applications like automotive. We present the next generation of polymer aluminum capacitors reaching rated voltage of 400 V. Life-test, frequency and low temperature characteristics are reported.
