NICHICON CORPORATION has launched the PCW Series of conductive polymer aluminum solid electrolytic capacitors with a guaranteed high ripple current at high temperatures.
This makes the PCW ideal for use in automotive and telecommunications sectors. The PCW Series is the industry’s first lineup of conductive polymer aluminum solid electrolytic capacitors to offer a guaranteed ripple current.
Overview and Development Background
Many automotive circuits are using low voltage PMIC or CPU/GPU control circuits. These circuits have increased the demand for high temperature and high reliability capacitors.
To satisfy this demand, NICHICON CORPORATION has launched the PCW Series that is rated for 2,000 hours at a maximum temperature 125° with rated ripple current applied. The PCW Series has optimized the sealing rubber with a high heat-resistant material to improve the reliability.
Aluminum solid electrolytic capacitors that utilize conductive polymers as electrolytes are characterized by both superior ESR in the high-frequency ranges and excellent ripple current durability. Our PCW Series uses highly heat-resistant sealing rubber to maintain stability even at high temperatures while achieving low ESR and reduced self-heating by using a superior lead wire and other optimized materials. The PCW Series is the first lineup of chip-type conductive polymer aluminum solid electrolytic capacitors in the industry to offer a guaranteed ripple current.
