Nichicon Corporation develops chip-type aluminum electrolytic capacitors ideally suited to use as power sources in medium to high voltage products such as vehicle ballast resistors and LED lights, widely acclaimed for their long life and energy efficiency. The line-up will be on display at the CEATEC JAPAN 2012 exhibition to be held at Makuhari Messe from 2-6 October (Tues-Sat).

 

Overview, Background of Development

In recent years, high voltage, chip-type aluminum electrolytic capacitors have been in demand mainly as vehicle ballast resistors, but have also been a key to the increasingly vibrant development of energy-saving power source products for the expanding LED market. These kinds of applications demand the ability to withstand even higher voltages, miniaturization, higher capacity, longer life and better reliability from aluminum electrolytic capacitors.
Adding to our line-up of high voltage, chip-type aluminum electrolytic capacitors to meet your diverse needs, we are able to offer you the best products that focus mainly on smooth input for various power sources. We also address your requirements for surface mounting to allow for miniaturization of set devices.

 

Main Features

These products, based on the technology fostered by Nichicon, are assembled with the optimal components including a newly developed electrolyte solution with capacity to withstand higher voltages and providing better reliability, as well as high voltage, high amplification foil. This has enabled us to create an industry breakthrough range with voltage ratings of 450V and 500V and a longer life guarantee of 10,000 hours at 105°C and 4,000 hours at 125°C.
