New EEH-ZS Series Pushes The Boundaries Of The Hybrid Polymer Electrolytic Segment With Higher Capacitance And Ripple Current Ratings

Panasonic has expanded its Conductive Polymer Hybrid Capacitors product line for the second time this year with the addition of a sixth Series. The New EEH-ZS Series not only expands the capacitance range and doubles ripple current capability, but it is also rated at 4,000 hours endurance at 125°C. The New EEH-ZS Series brings new case sizes, keeping the same footprint (ø10mm) and the first piece of the launch introduces Hybrid Capacitors that are 16mm in length.

Developed with the Automotive sector in mind, the EEH-ZS Series covers the range from 25V to 63V, with a capacitance range covering 560uF, an even lower ESR down to 11mΩ with ripple current of 4 Arms. As well as saving space, the lower ESR and higher ripple enhance filter and DC-link circuits in Automotive Control and Powertrain applications. The new series further hones the potential of Hybrid Conductive Polymer Capacitors as effective replacements for the difficult to source and soon-to-be-phased out larger MLCCs, offering a reliable and proven alternate vis-à-vis Lytics in tighter spaces or tantalums in higher frequency circuits. All the EEH-ZS Series products are fully RoHS and REACH compliant and are also AEC-Q200 compliant.

Shiro Izutsu, Product Marketing Manager at Panasonic comments: “The EEH-ZS Series can be seen as delivering higher performance keeping the premium PCB real estate in check with a few millimeters leeway in height. At the 63V line levels, 150uF might well be the highest capacitance in this class right now, and there is already strong interest due to the 48V battery system load dump requirements”.
