Conductive and hybrid aluminum polymer capacitors save PCB space

Conductive and hybrid conductive aluminium polymer capacitors have been released by Vishay Intertechnology in a range of small case sizes.

The conductive capacitors (184 CPNS, 185 CPNZ, and 186 CPNT series) and hybrid conductive (182 CPHZ and 183 CPHT series) aluminum polymer capacitors are available in case sizes ranging from 4.0 x 4.0 by 5.5mm to 10 x 10 x 12.4mm.

The Vishay BCcomponents devices offer longer lifetimes than do standard aluminum capacitors, and they provide higher ripple current and better impedance to save PCB space and lower costs, adds Vishay.

Useful life is 5,000 hours at +105 degree C, ripple current is to 5600mA, and ESR is down to nine milliohm. The conductive aluminum polymer capacitors are optimised for mobile devices and consumer and telecomms applications. For automotive and industrial applications, the hybrid conductive devices offer a lifetime to 10,000 hours at +105 degree C, ripple current to 2500mA, and ESR down to 20milliOhm.

Available in AEC-Q200 qualified versions on request, the RoHS-compliant, surface-mount capacitors support automatic placement and high temperature reflow soldering in accordance with JEDEC.

Samples and production quantities of the 182 CPHZ, 183 CPHT, 184 CPNS, 185 CPNZ, and 186 CPNT are available now, with lead times of 12 to 16 weeks for large orders.

Vishay Intertechnology is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of discrete semiconductors (diodes, MOSFETs, and infra red optoelectronics) and passive electronic components (resistors, inductors, and capacitors). These components are used in virtually all types of electronic devices and equipment, in the industrial, computing, automotive, consumer, telecommunications, military, aerospace, power supplies, and medical markets.
