KEMET T527 Series Facedown Terminal Polymer Tantalum

Combines improved packaging efficiency with a low profile design (1.0 mm max.)  through the use of facedown terminal technology. This series offers high capacitance in a 3216 package size. Typical applications include densely populated circuits where space restrictions do not allow for larger and more commonly available case sizes such as smart phones, digital cameras, MP3 players, GPS navigation systems, Wi-Fi modules, analytical and test equipment, and audio/sound circuits


KEMET T545 Tantalum Capacitors

Range of High Energy Density Tantalum Polymer Capacitors in standard chip form. 100% accelerated steady state aging, 100% surge current and 100% thermal shock.

KEMET NEC/Tokin SuperCapacitors

Wide operating temperature range from -25ºC to 70ºC (depending on series). SuperCapacitors have characteristics intermediate between general capacitors and batteries. Because of this, SuperCapacitors can be used like a secondary battery when applied to DC circuit. The best suited applications of Super Capacitor are back-up device for the power shut-down of micro computers and RAM's.

Panasonic POSCAP & OS-CON Polymer Capacitors

OS-CON is an aluminium solid capacitor with high conductive polymer or organic semiconductor electrolyte material which results in low ESR. Capacitors have excellent noise reduction capability and frequency characteristics. Long life span (Some special series can be expected 50,000h life at 85°C) and ESR remains stable at low temperatures since the electrolyte is solid. Learn more about OS-CON vs. Standard aluminium electrolytic capacitor.
