Polymer capacitors from Panasonic
The global electronics industry is currently experience a severe shortage of multilayer ceramic capacitors (MLCCs), with little signs of improvement in the short-term. Driven by increase in demand from consumer and automotive industries, shortages are cascading down through every market. Engineers are now faced with redesigning their products and swapping out MLCCs for alternative capacitor technologies.
Short on MLCCs for your design? Panasonic may hold the answer.
The polymer capacitor (as well as the conventional aluminium electrolytic capacitor) posesses large capacitance and excellent bias characteristics, which multilayer ceramic capacitors can never compete with. In addition to these advantages polymer capacitors have extremely low ESR attributes. Panasonic’s SP-CAPs and POS-CAPs in particular, with their small size factor and cubical form, are the go-to products when it comes to the replacement of MLCCs.
Panasonic’s range of polymer capacitors includes drop-in replacements for the following specifications:
- Voltage 2 – 35 V
- Capacitance ≥47μF
- B and D case sizes
- Non AEC-Q 200 compliant
