Low profile (1.1 mm height, 1.4 mm height), realizing low ESR and large capacitance in the industry (※1) Announcing the release of “the conductive polymer aluminum electrolytic capacitor SP-Cap” Suitable for power-supply circuits of thin-type note-book PCs

  • (※1) Our investigation of the conductive polymer aluminum electrolytic capacitor ( 1.1 mm height, 1.4 mm height) as of April 11, 2012

April 11, 2012, Osaka, Japan-Industrial Devices Company, Panasonic Corporation has succeeded in commercializing “ the conductive polymer aluminum electrolytic capacitor SP-Cap ”, featuring low ESR and large capacitance with low profile capacitors ( 1.1 mm height, 1.4 mm height ), and will commence mass-production. Newly developed capacitors are suitable for power-supply circuits of note-book PCs which have become to be thinner.

Product name Conductive polymer aluminum electrolytic capacitor SP-Cap
Series name SS・LS・CS series ( 1.1 mm height )
ST・LT・CT series ( 1.4 mm height )
Production start April 2012
Sample price 50 yen/piece
Production capacity 5 million pieces/month

With the increasing popularity of the thin type note-book PC ( some PCs are designed in half size of current models, around 20 mm thick) in note-book PC market, capacitors to be used for smoothing circuits of power supply of note-book PCs have been required to be lower profile. To meet the market demand, Industrial Devices Company, Panasonic Corporation has succeeded in developing “ the conductive polymer aluminum electrolytic capacitor SP-Cap “, featuring lowest ESR and large capacitance in the industry in the shape of low profile (1.1 mm height, 1.4 mm height), and will commence mass-production.
