Aluminum Polymer Capacitors Save Space, Lower Costs

Vishay Intertechnology’s conductive (184 CPNS, 185 CPNZ, and 186 CPNT series) and hybrid conductive (182 CPHZ and 183 CPHT series) aluminum polymer capacitors come in case sizes ranging from 4 mm x 4 mm x 5.5 mm to 10 mm x 10 mm x 12.4 mm. The company says the components offer longer lifetimes than standard aluminum capacitors and provide higher ripple current and better impedance to save PCB space and lower costs.


Conductive aluminum polymer capacitors feature a useful life to 5,000 hours at +105°C, ripple current to 5,600 mA, and ESR down to 9 mΩ. They are optimized for mobile devices and consumer and telecom applications. For automotive and industrial applications, the hybrid conductive devices offer a lifetime to 10,000 hours at +105°C, ripple current to 2,500 mA, and ESR down to 20 mΩ. Available in AEC-Q200 qualified versions on request, the RoHS-compliant, both capacitors support automatic placement and high temperature reflow soldering in accordance with JEDEC.
