The Aluminum Organic Capacitor (AO-CAP) is a solid state aluminum capacitor. The cathode is a conductive organic polymer which results in very low ESR and improved capacitance retention at high frequency. AO-CAPs may be operated at steady state voltages up to 100% of rated voltage without the need to de-rate. Since there is no liquid electrolyte, the A700 offers long operational lifetimes, low ESR and high operational temperatures. Rated operating temperature for the A700 is 125°C. The inherent low ESR renders the A700 suitable for high ripple current handling. The small package size, high ripple current capability, high operating temperature, low parasistics and high capacitance makes the A700 ideal for high performance microprocessor, FPGA and ASIC decoupling designs.
