What is Conductive-Polymer Hybrid Aluminum Electrolytic-Capacitor
Capacitor achieved both high performance and high reliability
- Capacitor with the electrolyte fused with conductive polymer and electrolyte liquid
- As features of both conductive polymer and electrolyte liquid, large ripple current(low Equivalent Series Resistance : ESR), low leakage current and high reliability contribute to downsizing and high reliability of the equipment
- Suitable for automotive equipment and base stations which need compact and high reliability components.

Characteristic comparison with aluminum electrolytic capacitors, replacement examples
Replacement of aluminum electrolytic capacitors with hybrid capacitors
|Aluminum electrolytic capacitor
|ESR (300kHz)||47 mΩ|
|capacitance||1190 mA rms|
|Input voltage waveform to capacitor

22 μF x 5 pcs x 20% = 22 μF
(Capacitance reduced by 15 VDC)
(No Capacitance reduced by 15VDC)
Since the capacitance of MLCCs is reduced by applying voltage,
replacing MLCCs with hybrid capacitors can reduced quantities and space.
