Cornell Dubilier Electronics, Inc. (CDE) has released the type HZA Hybrid Polymer-Aluminum electrolytic capacitors. Combining the advantages of each technology, type HZA has the ultra-low ESR characteristics of conductive aluminum polymer capacitors packaged in a V-chip, SMT case with high capacitance and voltage ratings previously available only in aluminum electrolytic technology.
Capacitance values for type HZA range from 10 to 330 µF at voltage ratings from 25 to 80VDC and ripple current values exceeding 2000mA on some of the larger chip sizes. When operated at their rated temperature of 105Â°C and rated voltage at full ripple current load, type HZA capacitors have an exceedingly long life of 10,000 hrs.
“The hybrid series gives the design engineer the best of both worlds” says Holly Good, Product Manager. “They also have superior smoothing performance at higher switching frequencies and lower temperatures.” Good continued.
