Panasonic announces the new EEH-ZK Series Conductive Polymer Hybrid Aluminum SMD Electrolytic Capacitors. Using large space-consuming axial, THT and SMD Capacitors to achieve low ESR requirements and good EMC behavior is passé. Panasonic Hybrid Capacitors, combining the advantages of Electrolytic Capacitors with those of solid Polymer Capacitors, have established themselves as reliant and across-the-board solutions in Automotive and Industrial applications alike. Hybrid technology offers low leakage current and long life in combination with low ESR in smaller case sizes. The voltage range of 25V to 80V caters to the Capacitor industry standard temperature rating of -55°C to 105°C (ZA Series) and -55°C to 125°C (ZC and New ZK Series). Ripple Current Rating (RCR), which is the decisive factor for a lot of capacitance agnostic applications find dramatic improvement for long lifetimes of 10000h at 105°C and 4000h at 125°C. Endurance at 3000h at 125°C allows the possibility to augment the RCR up to 1.5 times. AEC-Q200 qualification ensures optimal quality and reliability. The New EEH-ZK Series parts are available in 25 and 35 V.DC and are ideal when high temperature and high current capability are being demanded by the application.
