Organic Capacitor (KO-CAP) is a solid electrolytic capacitor with a conductive polymer cathode capable of delivering ultra low ESR and improved capacitance retention at high frequencies. KO-CAP combines the low ESR of multilayer ceramic, the high capacitance of aluminum electrolytic, and the volumetric efficiency of tantalum into a single surface mount package.
Capacitors are one of the fundamental building blocks of electrical circuits. Whether they are being used for energy storage, noise filtering, or timing/frequency design, capacitors are important in many common electrical devices.
Power management in space applications is related with multiple critical functions as energy storage, conditioning its distribution and conversion from higher to lower levels, feeding all kinds of electronic modules in equipment’s that can be integrated in a launcher (with short duration usage) up to probes or space stations ( with decades of usage).
The tantalum polymer SMD are solid-state capacitors that demonstrate no wear out mechanism when operated within their recommended guidelines. Unlike their MnO2 counterparts, polymer capacitors don’t need to be derated as aggressively. Under most conditions of consumer electronics devices, polymer capacitors only need about 10% derating.
Tantalum capacitors are widely used in modern electronic devices due to their volumetric capacitive efficiency and reliability. The aim of the work published by Vladimir Azbel on his LinkedIn blog is to discuss some basic physical considerations of tantalum capacitor anode design to improve its capabilities towards a further increase of volumetric efficiency and reliability.
