Low-Profile Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitor from New Yorker Electronics Breaks Energy Density Barriers

13 December 2017

Today, distributor New Yorker Electronics announced the release of a new high-density, low-profile electrolytic capacitor series produced by Cornell Dubilier Electronics (CDE). The CDE 85C THA Series ThinPack capacitors are only 8.2 mm thick while the 105C THAS Series is 9 mm.

The series offers a higher bulk-storage energy density than standard capacitors of similar footprints, such as the V-chip electrolytics, tantalum or board-mounted axials. Both capacitors in the series could replace an array of SMT, axial or radial aluminum electrolytic array.

This, in turn, will allow designers to simplify assembly at a higher reliability. In most applications, there are significant cost, weight and space savings versus a comparably rated bank of SMT or axial aluminum electrolytic capacitors. In addition, the use of a single component versus many and fewer connections improves overall circuit reliability.

Some features of the series include:

· Low profile

· Very high energy density (up to 0.9 J/cc)

· 3000 hour life at 85° C

· REACH and RoHS Compliant

· Temperature range: -55 C to +85 C for THA and -55 C to +105 C+ for the THAS series

Applications, include:

· Tablets and laptops

· Instrumentation

· Commercial-grade LED driver modules

· Compact power supplies

· Drones and RPVs

· Set-top boxes

· 1U rack-mounted devices
