Nichicon Corporation has developed the CM series of chip-type aluminum capacitors which deliver an endurance guarantee of 2,000 hours at 105°C, with high capacitance and low impedance in response to the constant demand in all industries, from digital electronics to automotive and for a small, high capacitance product ideally suited to miniaturization of set devices and higher performance. The series will be on display at the CEATEC JAPAN 2012 exhibition to be held at Makuhari Messe from 2-6 October (Tues-Sat).

 

Background of Development

Demand for chip-type capacitors is growing as manufacturers look to mount more densely on set devices for electronic equipment and consumer appliances. Capacitors for use in digital equipment needs to be low in noise and impedance. In addition to denser mounting, the miniaturization of set devices and their increasingly high performance means that capacitors themselves must be made smaller, with higher capacitance and lower impedance. We believe that our CM line-up not only responds to the need for denser surface mounting than ever, but also contributes a solution to the constant demand for smaller and lighter set devices, as well as reducing parts count.

 

Main Features

Based on technology developed by Nichicon, this product applies a new separator and high voltage, high amplification foil, and is assembled with optimal components. This has enabled us to create a smaller, higher capacitance product from the current 105°C low impedance chip-type CL series. The CM series allows us to contribute to the reduction of parts count for each set device, as well as saving space and improving efficiency.
In terms of endurance, the CM series has guaranteed service of 2,000 hours at 105°C.
