Surface Mount Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors with ESRs as low as 0.08Ω

April 28, 2020 by Paul Shepard

Panasonic Industry Europe has added the FN series of surface-mount, low ESR aluminum electrolytic capacitors to its product line-up. Available from a rated voltage of 6.3Vdc to 100Vdc, the FN series offers wide capacitance values (10µF up to 1800µF), which are between 20% and 80% higher than the long-running FK series.

With 2,000 hours lifetime at a rated temperature range from -55°C to +105°C and ESRs from 0.08Ω to 3.50Ω, the FN series is the solution provider to many different applications. The compact design contributes to space saving on the PCB.

The low ESR characteristics render the latest capacitor series suitable for industrial applications like measuring instruments, information and communication technology and also infotainment applications.
