The EEH-ZK Series Hybrid SMD Capacitors has a temperature range of -55°C to 125°C and a Ripple Current Rating (RCR) of 10000h at 105°C and 4000h at 125°C, which is the decisive factor for a lot of capacitance agnostic applications find dramatic improvement for long lifetimes. Endurance at 4000h at 125°C allows the possibility to augment the RCR up to 1.5 times. AEC-Q200 qualification ensures optimal quality and reliability. Panasonic Hybrid Capacitors, combining the advantages of Electrolytic Capacitors with those of solid Polymer Capacitors, have established themselves as reliant and across-the-board solutions in Automotive and Industrial applications alike. Hybrid technology offers low leakage current and long life in combination with low ESR in smaller case sizes.
Panasonic components specified as AEC-Q200 Compliant are consistently designed into automotive systems. However, today’s Design Engineers are specifying AEC-Q200 components to meet the high-quality standards of devices beyond automotive applications.
Parts that pass the AEC tests are qualified, high-quality components that can be used in critical environments. Therefore, there should be no need to conduct other component level tests saving both time and expense.
Current AEC-Q200 Standard documents developed by the AEC Component Technical Committee are available on the AEC website. The AEC is an organization based in the U.S. that sets qualification standards for the supply of components in the automotive electronics industry.
If your next device requires components that meet the Automotive Electronics Council (AEC) requirements for components suitable for harsh automotive environments, think Panasonic!
For larger capacitance needs, Panasonic also manufactures EEH-ZK(U) Series Conductive Polymer Hybrid Aluminum SMD Electrolytic Capacitors Capacitors. The EEH-ZK(U) Series goes beyond using large space-consuming axial, THT, and SMD Capacitors to achieve low ESR requirements. They provide 20% larger capacitance in the same small case sizes, reducing the number of capacitors required. The EEH-ZK(U) can also withstand shocks as much as 30G.
