Panasonic Industry to set focus on superior SP-Cap Polymer Capacitor technology


Wherever a minimal ESR is the primary consideration for identifying the most suitable capacitor, the latest SP-Cap innovations from Panasonic Industry are likely to become the new flagship of „Super Low“.

Speaking in numbers, the SP-Cap with 3 mΩ has the lowest Equivalent Series Resistance for this technology in the market. This must be considered as unrivaled at present – and makes the Polymer Technology a highly relevant option for microprocessor-based assemblies. SP-CAP’s specifications promise a more than sound performance within contemporary and complex low-profile electronical devices: Capacitance counts up to a maximum of remarkable 820 µF and – not least to mention – a ripple current capacity up to 10.200 mA rms.

“Although all that might sound like a footnote of electronical engineering – it isn‘t“, Shahrokh Kananizadeh, the product manager of Panasonic Industry Europe explains. “It is exactly that very composition of ESR, capacitance and ripple current tolerance that make a capacitor an outstanding capacitor. One that turns out in the end of the day to be a crucial component for the long term reliability or – on the contrary – its faultiness.“

Additionally, Polymer Technology of Panasonic Industry especially SP-CAP, has already proven it can be great replacement for Multi-Layer ceramic capacitors and Pure Tantalum capacitors by offering fewer number of parts being mounted on PCBs and having better performance as well.

Panasonic Industry is planning on expanding SP-CAP portfolio by focusing more on longer endurance and higher reliable products. With this latest innovation Panasonic Industry reinforces again its market-leading position in the field of polymer capacitor technology that can be reliably operated within a wide range of temperature.

“A matter of course“, as Shahrokh Kananizadeh says, “as sustainability has to literally start with the small parts, Panasonic Industry Polymer technology will be a big contribution to this trend”.
