Polymer Capacitors- Your Solution When MLCC Lead Times Are Tight
Technology summary for High-Reliability (Hi-Rel) surface mount Polymer Tantalum Capacitors. At Space Tech Expo 2017, Cristina shows improvements made to KO-CAP to make them suitable for ESA usage in space.
Webinar talking about the difference between nominal and net capacitance of a capacitor solution. Presented on 12 JUNE 2017 in German.
Tantalum polymer capacitors are expanding their market share in the commercial world because they offer superior electrical performance (primarily much lower ESR), have outstanding reliability, and display a more benign failure response than the incumbent MnO2-cathode tantalum capacitor technology. It is natural that engineers want to use this new technology in high-reliability applications.
Understand why technical advances, changes in the tantalum supply chain, and new ore deposits make tantalum capacitors a substitute for many applications.
