Tecate Group MXCPB and MXCPT capacitors: Hybrid-construction capacitors feature low ESR
EDN Staff - February 15, 2012
The MXCPB and MXCPT series of aluminum-polymer hybrid-construction capacitors feature operating load-life ratings as high as 2000 hours. The MXCPB series is available with a capacitance value of 22 to 560 μF and voltage options of 6.3, 10, and 16V dc. The devices come in 8×10.5- and 10×10.5-mm cases and operate at −55 to +125°C. Load life is 2000 hours at 125°C. Capacitors in the MXCPT series come in capacitance values of 10 to 330 μF and voltage options of 25, 35, 40, 50, and 63V dc. The devices come in four case sizes ranging from 6.3×7.7 to 10×12.5 mm and operate at −55 to +135°C. At 135°C, the 6.3×7.7-mm parts’ load life is 1000 hours. Both series’ capacitance tolerance is ±20%. Prices are approximately 35 cents for the MXCPB series and 55 to 95 cents for the MXCPT series.
