Polymer Capacitors for Automotive – AEC Reliability Workshop 2016

Download PDF:

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

Presented by Jayson Young at the 2016 AEC Reliability Workshop.
