Experiences with MnO2 tantalum capacitors in the past may have caused some engineers to look at alternatives. However, a decade of a new Polymer tantalum solves many of the previous challenges, especially in Automotive applications.
KEMET’s T598 Polymer Electrolytic Capacitor is an AEC-Q200 qualified solution for automotive.
This presentation covers:
- The truth to some tantalum myths (here’s five more)
- Conflict-free and ore sources
- How the tantalum supply chain has evolved
- How safe are polymer capacitors to use
- The advantage of polymer (versus traditional MnO2)
- Steps to making the industry’s first Polymer capacitors Q200 qualified
