SPCX/SPSX: Surface Mount Aluminum Polymer Capacitors for DC/DC Converter Input and Output Applications

With High Temperature Solder Capabilities

Liberty, SC (July 2009) — Cornell Dubilier announces availability of types SPCX and SPSX surface mount aluminum polymer capacitors for DC/DC converter input and output applications. Both series are designed to handle up to 260°C solder temperatures used in the manufacture of RoHS compliant circuit boards.

Type SPCX is the most economical series in a low ESR package. Capacitance ranges from 100µF to 470µF in voltage ratings from 2.0Vdc to 6.3Vdc, with ripple current capability of 2.7A at 105°C.

Type SPSX has less than 9 milliohms of ESR allowing it to handle 3A of ripple current at 105°C. Capacitance values range from 82µF to 470µF in voltage ratings from 2.0Vdc to 6.3Vdc.

Both types are supplied in a surface mount molded package with the same footprint as a D size tantalum capacitor in a very thin profile of 1.9mm. Applications include, but are not limited to, DC/DC converters for audio/visual equipment, computers, home appliances, optical and measuring equipment.

In OEM quantities types SPCX and SPSX capacitors are available with pricing from $0.50. Samples available upon request, production in 8-10 weeks.
