Nichicon has developed high-voltage, smaller sized aluminum electrolytic capacitors primarily suited for use in digital equipment, as well as AC adaptors and other power conversion applications. The lineup will be on display at the CEATEC JAPAN 2013 exhibition, held at Makuhari Messe, October 1-5 (Tues-Sat).

Background of Development

Demand for smaller, higher-capacity aluminum electrolytic capacitors are increasing as digital equipment and AC adaptors become smaller. There has been particularly high demand for compact, high-capacity aluminum electrolytic 400-450V class capacitors used in primary power sources. With circuit board space at a premium, engineers must constantly find new ways to shrink their components while still maintaining their overall performance. .In light of these changes, Nichicon has developed the long lasting, high reliability, high voltage CP series.

Main Features

The CP series was developed by utilizing over half a century of technological advancements, such as high-capacity, high-strength aluminum electrode foil development, optimized element design, and winding technology. This resulted in a product that is among the world´s smallest, yet has the highest-capacitance in its class- (40% smaller, with a maximum of 76% greater capacitance, than the current CS Series). These aluminum electrolytic capacitors are optimized for digital equipment, AC adaptors, and other power conversion applications in which space is a premium.
