|U37 Series - The U37 family of screw-terminal aluminum electrolytic capacitors provides high ripple current and long life to extend reliability in power-inverter systems. The family has three series: U37F, U37L, and U37x. The U37F has an endurance rating of 5,000 hours at +85°C with the rated ripple current applied. Useful life can exceed 150,000 hours at +45°C and 1.5 times the ripple current. The U37L has an endurance rating of 10,000 hours at +85°C with the rated ripple current applied. Useful life is 175,000 at +45°C and 1.5 times the ripple current. The U37X has an endurance rating of 15,000 hours at +85°C with the rated ripple current applied. Its useful life is also 175,000 at 45°C and 1.5 times the ripple current applied.
|MHJ Series Capacitors - United Chemi-Con’s MHJ series, SMD-type aluminum electrolytic capacitors are ideally suited to use in automotive electronics applications. In line with the advancing development of electronically controlled vehicles, placement environment of ECU (Electric Control Unit) is diversifying from inside the passenger compartment to outside the compartment, and to the engine room. An ECU (Engine ECU) mounted inside or near the engine room is exposed to engine heat when driving, and sometimes it is exposed to severely cold temperature in cold regions.
|PSF Series Capacitors - United Chemi-Con’s PSF series lead-type conductive polymer aluminum solid capacitors are ideally suited to use in computer as VRM bulk capacitors, as well as for noise absorption of DC/DC converters and other applications. We have newly added to the PSF series a product that features large capacitance of 1,200 μF at 2.5 V, while keeping an ESR of 5 mΩ. This will contribute in reducing the number of VRM bulk capacitors used in PC, which will take up less space of the substrate. It is also suitable for use in power supply outputs for noise absorption.
