Tecate Intros SMD Hi-Farad Caps
San Diego, CA — Tecate Industries has introduced its MXCP series of conductive polymer aluminum electrolytic capacitors, which includes the SMD Types MXCPA, MXCPH and MXCPP. Replacing the liquid electrolyte with solid polymer material has resulted in new capacitors that are highly stable when exposed to temperature fluctuations, and have very low ESR (equivalent series resistance) values and high ripple current ratings.

The high capacitance values and low ESR enable low impedance at high frequency to support excellent noise suppression and ripple absorption in a wide array of applications in which space is critical and cost per placement and maximum throughput are priorities.

The RoHS-compliant capacitors consist of SMD parts in capacitance ranges of 1.7 to 1000µF, and with rated voltages from 6.3 to 100VDC. Capacitors in the series are available for wide temperature ranges from -55 to +105°C and from -55 to +125°C. Versions with load life ratings to 5,000 or 10,000 hours (at +105°C) are also available.

The MXCP capacitors provide a suitable alternative to standard aluminum electrolytic capacitors in a broad range of consumer, industrial and automotive electronics applications that call for extended life, extended temperature range, and low profile. The parts are most frequently specified for use in flat-panel TVs, liquid crystal displays (LCDs), plasma display panels (PDPs), PCs and industrial PCs, servers, and power supplies.

The capacitors are offered in five case sizes ranging from 6.3 x 6.0mm (0.248 x 0.236-in.) to 10 x 12.5mm (0.394 x 0.49-in.), the MXCP capacitors are coated with epoxy resin for superior heat resistance, humidity resistance and solvent resistance. Parts are compatible with Pb-free soldering processes, and supplied on tape-and-reel.
