By combining the advantages of electrolytic capacitors with those of solid Polymer Capacitors, Hybrid Capacitors from Panasonic Automotive and Industrial Systems Europe have been designed to offer reliable and versatile solutions in automotive and industrial applications alike. Hybrid technology offers low leakage current and long life in combination with low ESR (20mΩ) in miniature case sizes.
Panasonic's new EEH-ZE series (Type V-ZE) Hybrid Aluminium Electrolytic Capacitors are ultra-high-temperature capacitors that have an endurance of 2000 hours at 145degC. These surface-mount conductive Polymer Hybrid components offer a nominal capacitance range of 33µF up to 330µF, at voltage ranges from 25V DC up to 63V DC, and have an operating temperature range of -55degC up to 145degC, as well as low ESR and high ripple current.
The products are AEC-Q200 compliant, can endure high humidity conditions rated at 85degC/90 per cent - 2000h while offering tiered ripple current ratings at 135degC and 145degC.
“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 Andreas Lapucha, European Product Manager for Polymer Capacitors at Panasonic. "Their endurance and low ESR makes them ideal for use in automotive applications, servers, base stations and industrial PCs, yet they are small enough for wireless and IoT designs.”
