S.O.S Short on MLCCs ?

Panasonic is a leading supplier for Capacitor technology offering an extremely wide range of MLCC alternative solutions including SP-Cap, Polymer Family POSCAP, OS-CON, Hybrid, all of which can be considered NOW to replace difficult-to-get MLCCs.

With higher ripple current, stable ESR and capacitance across broad temperature and frequency spectrum, Polymer capacitors  offer value against Electrolytics for efficient designs.

4 variations in Polymer dielectric capacitors

  • Including chip and can-type (SMD & THT ).
  • No derating and DC bias unlike MLCCs
  • Physically more robust, longer lifetimes and safe-failure modes (no-burning)

DROP-IN REPLACEMENT FOR MLCC IF:

  • Voltage 2 – 35V
  • Capacitance required ≥47μF
  • B and D case sizes
  • Non AECQ-200 compliant

2 EASY STEPS TO IDENTIFY YOUR RIGHT FIT

1. VOLTAGE NO DERATING REQUIRED

MLCC with derating

Conductive Polymer Capacitor Voltage

6.3V or 10V

~3V to 5V

10V or 16V

~6,3V to 10V

16V or 25V

~12V to 20V

25V or 50V

~20V to 35V
