Aluminium electrolytic capacitors offer higher ripple current

Two aluminium electrolytic capacitors from Panasonic meet the market demands for higher ripple current handling. Developed from the V-TP series components, the V-TC and V-TCU series benefit from 1.2 to 1.5 times higher ripple current capabilities at 125°C (V-TC series 300mA for D8 can size up to 750mA for G can size and V-TCU series 400mA for F can size up to 750mA for G can size).

In addition, V-TCU also offers 1.2 to 2.2 times larger capacitance values (220 up to 680microF) while downsizing by one can size (G to F size or F to D8 size).

Suitable applications are automotive ECU in DC/DC filtering and output ripple smoothing. The can-shape surface-mount capacitors feature a footprint from 6.3 x 7.7mm up to 10 x 10.2mm and a lifetime of 2000 hours for smaller can sizes and 3000 hours for larger can sizes.
