Panasonic takes on MLCC ceramic capacitors with long life solid polymer technology
Panasonic Industry has launched a range of aluminium polymer capacitors with a lifetime of over 5,500 hours at 125°C to take on multilayer ceramic capacitors (MLCCs) and pure tantalum capacitors. MLCCs in particularly have been in short supply over the last few years, creating supply chain issues.

The KX series in the SP-Cap portfolio is aimed at designs where low ESR is a key consideration with capacitance up to 820 µF and a ripple current up to 10.2 Arms. The solid polymer technology gives the KX has a typical ESR of 9mohm with damp heat specifications of 1,000 hours at 85°C and 85% relative humidity (RH) for harsh outdoor applications. It measures 7.3 x 4.3 mm with a height of 1.9mm.
“The KX series has many benefits in a wide range of applications, such as noise reduction or voltage smoothing in base stations, networks, servers, accelerators and industrial equipment. Briefly said, the KX series sets new standards in terms of high temperature reliability – and underlines the superiority of polymer technology for new designs,” said Shahrokh Kananizadeh, Product Manager at Panasonic Industry.
