Product News April 17, 2018

 NICHICON CORPORATION has developed and launched sales of the GYB series of conductive polymer hybrid aluminum electrolytic capacitors guaranteed for 10,000 hours at 105°C. This high temperature, long life and high ripple current series was developed in response to rising demands in the consumer electronics and industrial machinery applications.
 This product will be on display at the 33rd Power System exhibition, being held at Makuhari Messe from Wednesday April 18, to Friday, April 20.

Overview/Development Background

 The GYA series of conductive polymer hybrid aluminum electrolytic capacitors meets high-temperature, low-ESR performance demands in the automotive onboard electronics and industrial machinery fields. However, demand is also increasing in the consumer electronics field for products that offer higher performance, higher ripple current and an extended life. With the launch of the GYB series, NICHICON will contribute to higher performance, higher ripple current and extended lifespans in various applications in consumer electronics and other fields.


 Conductive polymer hybrid aluminum electrolytic capacitors use conductive polymers and electrolytes for the electrolyte. This takes advantage of the conductive polymers’ characteristics of low-ESR performance and high heat resistance. The electrolyte also functions in oxide layer repair.
 The GYB series takes the design concepts of the previously released GYA series, optimizing the film formation process of the conductive polymer and using an electrolyte with good affinity to conductive polymers realizing high ripple tolerance current. The GYB series offers 1.2 to 1.4 times higher ripple tolerance than the GYA series and offers an extended lifespan guaranteed for 10,000 hours in a
105°C environment.
