Conductive polymer caps store up to 38.8mJ

November 07, 2016 // By Julien Happich
Now available in a low-profile 7361-15 case & with several improved energy ratings, AVX’s J-CAP Series solid electrolytic chip capacitors with conductive polymer electrodes are claimed to deliver the industry’s highest energy per volume.

The devices are now available in a large 7361-15 case with a low 1.5mm height profile, and capable of delivering up to 38.8mJ in low-profile SMD designs. The series’ high energy, low ESR (50–300mΩ at 100kHz), and low DCL (0.1CV), allow J-CAP capacitors to deliver compact and cost effective high-energy solutions suitable for backup power applications in demanding solid-state drives (SSDs), including multilevel cells (MLCs), single-level cells (SLCs), enterprise flash drives (EFDs), and PCI Express (PCIe) drives, in addition to battery-powered portable equipment, industrial alarms, smart power meters, and other mobile devices. The whole series now features capacitance values spanning 4.7µF to 1,500µF with a ±20% capacitance tolerance. Rated for operating temperatures spanning -55°C to +105°C, and 3x reflow compatible at 260°C, the series is also currently available with four voltage ratings: 6.3V, 16V, 25V, and 35V. Typical derating is 10% for ≤16V and 20% for 20V and higher voltages.
