Expanded Line of Polymer Chip Capacitors Now Offers Voltage Ratings up to 35 VDC

Cornell Dubilier’s XMPL Series Polymer Chip Capacitor series has been expanded to match applications requiring higher voltage and/or capacitance requirements.

Cornell Dubilier’s XMPL Series Polymer Chip Capacitor series has been expanded to match applications requiring higher voltage and/or capacitance requirements. With very low ESR and robust ripple current ratings, they will easily outperform surface mount electrolytics of greater size. XMPL capacitors also provide longer life, greater stability with temperature changes, and lower ESR at higher frequencies than electrolytics. Compared to tantalum capacitors of similar size (standard 7343, 7.3x4.3x1.9 LWT, mm), they are lower in cost.

Fewer XMPL capacitors may be required in a circuit, vs. electrolytic types. Depending on the application and values, one XMPL can replace two or three aluminum electrolytics. This advantage can essentially balance out the cost differential while providing higher performance and longer life.

Standard capacitance values now range from 6.8µF to 470µF, with a maximum working voltage of 35VDC. The solid polymer dielectric and specialized design of these capacitors result in excellent high-frequency performance in compact power supplies, DC to DC converters, and inverters. Additional applications include decoupling and noise suppression in environmental controls, LED lighting, instrumentation, office automation, and medical equipment.

CDE’s SMD Polymer Capacitors are a good choice for applications where temperature stability and small size are requirements. Load life is 2,000 hours at 105 °C with full-rated voltage applied. Halogen-free and ROHS compliant. The operating temperature is from -55 °C to 105 °C.

  • TYPE MXT, X2, EMI/RFI Suppression Capacitors, Harsh Environment
    Released Nov, 2023

    TYPE MXT, X2, EMI/RFI Suppression Capacitors, Harsh Environment

    Type MXT Series Metallized Polypropylene Film Capacitor, designed to suppress conducted electromagnetic/radio frequency interference (EMI/RFI) at a circuit’s power input. These capacitors are perfect for use in harsh environments having met the demanding 85/85 THB (Temperature, Humidity, Bias) test requirements. Class X2 capacitors, like the MXT, are typically connected across the AC input to prevent interference from spreading through power lines or other devices on the same circuit.
