RS Components has the POSCAP and OS-CON capacitors from Panasonic Industrial Devices, that provide high reliability and efficiency in small volume and low profile packages

RS is stocking these low Equivalent Series Resistance (ESR) polymer capacitors from the Panasonic Industrial Devices range. POSCAP and OS-CON offer reliable, efficient, long lifetimes

POSCAP is a solid chip capacitor with a sintered tantalum anode and a highly conductive polymer cathode. Its low impedance and low ESR (down to 5 mΩ) enable excellent performance at high frequency while maintaining a low profile and a high capacitance range. The device offers excellent noise-absorption characteristics, and provides high heat resistance, spanning a wide temperature range of between -55°C and +125°C.

OS-CON is a solid aluminium capacitor containing highly conductive polymer electrolyte material. OS-CON offers low ESR, excellent noise reduction capability and frequency characteristics. OS-CON has a long life span of up to 30 years, and can operate efficiently at even the lowest temperatures due to the solid electrolyte. OS-CON and POSCAP are suitable as a smoothing, backup and bypass capacitor in a wide range of applications.
