SP-Cap – Conductive Polymer Aluminium Capacitors

Panasonic

Based on common aluminium electrolytic capacitor technology SP cap uses solid polymer electrolyte instead of liquid electrolyte.

It has been continuously developed since 1990 and offers very stable capacitance characteristics over the complete operating temperature and frequency range, especially compared to ceramic and low ESR tantalum capacitors. And in terms of safety SP Cap does not easily ignite or “smoke” at over-voltage conditions or in case of short circuit. If a defect occurs, the polymer will become self-insulating and shuts off the current flow.
