New aluminium electrolytic capacitors offering higher ripple current and larger capacitance to demanding applications

July 08, 2016 Press Release

Panasonic has recently released two new series of aluminium electrolytic capacitors to meet the market demands for higher ripple current handling.

Panasonic Automotive & Systems Europe has recently released two new series of aluminium electrolytic capacitors to meet the market demands for higher ripple current handling. Developed from the proven V-TP series components, the new V-TC and V-TCU series benefit from 1.2 to 1.5 times higher ripple current capabilities at 125°C (V-TC series 300mA for D8 can size up to 750mA for G can size and V-TCU series 400mA for F can size up to 750mA for G can size).

In addition, V-TCU parts also offer 1.2 to 2.2 times larger capacitance values (220µF up to 680µF) while downsizing by one can size (G to F size or F to D8 size).

Ideal for applications such as automotive ECU in DC/DC filtering and output ripple smoothing, the can-shape surface-mount capacitors feature a footprint from 6.3mm x 7.7mm up to 10mm x 10.2mm and a lifetime of 2000 hours for smaller can sizes and 3000 hours for larger can sizes.

Remarks Stefan Fritsch at Panasonic: “With the new V-TC and V-TCU aluminium electrolytic capacitors our customers benefit from the high ripple current and capacitance capabilities while maintaining the same land pattern as before”.
