Kyocera Introduces Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors for Space Constrained PCB Designs

KYOCERA AVX, a leading global manufacturer of advanced electronic components engineered to accelerate technological innovation and build a better future, released the new RES Series radial-leaded aluminum electrolytic capacitors.

The new RES Series wet aluminum electrolytic capacitors are engineered to deliver high CV values in small case sizes, long-lifetime endurance of 5,000 - 7,000 hours at 105°C, and high ripple current to help manufacturers save board space in high-density PCB assemblies without compromising on endurance. They are also lead-free compatible and compliant with the RoHS, REACH, and CA Prop 65 directives, enabling broad suitability in industrial, communications, and consumer electronics applications, including computers, access points, and other networking stations compatible with the 802.11 protocol.

The series is currently available in five case sizes (0511, 0611, 0812, 0816, and 0820) with diameters spanning 5.00 - 8.00 mm, lengths spanning 11.00 - 20.00 mm, and weights extending from just 0.41 - 1.81 g. The initial release also offers four voltage ratings (16, 25, 35, and 50 V) and capacitance values extending from 2.2 - 1,000 µF (±20%), exhibits ripple currents spanning 190 - 1,400HmArms and withstands operating temperatures extending from -40°C to +105°C.

The RES Series is the eighth series to join the extensive radial-leaded aluminum electrolytic capacitors portfolio that KYOCERA AVX released in February 2022. That portfolio now offers four lines of wet aluminum electrolytic capacitors (the RES, REA, REF, and REH Series), two lines of conductive polymer aluminum electrolytic capacitors (the RPA and RPF Series), and two lines of hybrid aluminum electrolytic capacitors (the RHA and RHD Series), as well as an even wider variety of part numbers available with commercial and industrial reliability levels and competitive pricing and lead times.

“Our new RES Series radial-leaded aluminum electrolytic capacitors provide industrial, communications, and consumer electronics manufacturers with the miniaturization, long-lifetime endurance, and high-CV performance that their high-density designs demand,” said Jackson Payne, Associate Product Marketing Manager at KYOCERA AVX. “So, we’re very excited to further extend our portfolio of radial-leaded aluminum electrolytic capacitors with this new series and to offer customers an even more extensive selection of capacitance values, voltage ratings, and case sizes ideally suited to solving their design challenges.”
