 NICHICON CORPORATION expanded the GYA series ratings to include 16V parts, enabling customers to further optimize equipment design. The GYA series are conductive polymer hybrid aluminum electrolytic capacitors featuring superior performance at high temperatures, long life, high ripple current, and low equivalent series resistance (ESR) that have seen increasing demand from the automotive and industrial machinery fields.
 The new series will be exhibited at Power System Japan 2019, held at Makuhari Messe from Wednesday, April 17, to Friday, April 19.

Overview and Development Background

NICHICON had launched the GYA series (operation guaranteed for 4,000 hours at 125°C) and GYB series (operation guaranteed for 10,000 hours at 105°C) of conductive polymer hybrid aluminum electrolytic capacitors for use in products primarily for the automotive and industrial machinery sectors where high reliability is required. The 16V product, newly added to the GYA series lineup (25V-63V) allows customers to optimize their designs.


 Conductive polymer hybrid aluminum electrolytic capacitors use both conductive polymers and electrolytic solutions for electrolytes. Combining the 2 types of electrolytes gives the GYA characteristics of both conductive polymers (low ESR, high heat resistance) and electrolytic solutions (oxide film restoration).
 NICHICON developed the 16V rating for the GYA series by utilizing its basic technology developed with current conductive polymer hybrid aluminum electrolytic capacitors that optimizes the anode foil performance.
