Panasonic has launched a range of high temperature Hybrid Aluminium Electrolytic Capacitors with an endurance of 4000 hours at 125°C.
Hybrid capacitors combine the advantages of electrolytic capacitors with those of solid polymer capacitors with low leakage current and long life in combination with low ESR in smaller case sizes.
The new EEH-ZK series (Type V-ZK) surface-mount conductive polymer capacitors offer a nominal capacitance range of 33µF up to 470µF, a voltage range of 25VDC up to 35VDC, an operating temperature range of -55ºC up to 125ºC, as well as low ESR and high ripple current (85% over, lower ESR than Current V-TP). The products are AEC-Q200 compliant, can endure high humidity conditions and are rated at 85°C/85% – 2000h.
“Our new Hybrid Capacitors are ideal for a broad spectrum of applications including input/output filtering in power converters and voltage regulators, power and battery decoupling and clock circuitry,” said Mustafa Khan, European Product Manager for Polymer Capacitors at Panasonic. “Their high temperature rating makes them ideal for use in automotive applications, servers, base stations and industrial PCs, yet they are small enough for wireless and IoT designs.”
