NSPE-A series, hybrid construction SMT aluminum electrolytic capacitors, with 10,000 hour lifetime rating

NIC Components is pleased to announce the addition of NSPE-A series, of surface mount aluminum electrolytic capacitors, to its growing family of hybrid construction capacitors.

Hybrid capacitors incorporate the best elements of both solid polymer and liquid electrolyte construction to provide ultra-low ESR, high ripple current ratings, with low leakage current and superior stability over temperature. NSPE-A series is ideal for use as alternates to solid polymer, or MLCCs type capacitors in DC-DC, POL, VRM and power management applications requiring high voltage and stability.

The NSPE-A series features extended lifetime rating of 10,000 hours at +105°C for long lifetime applications. Rated for use over -55°C to +105°C, in capacitance values from 10uF to 330uF, and voltage ratings from 25VDC to 80VDC. The liquid electrolyte, used within NSPE-A series, has the advantages of improved surge transient absorption, self healing and open mode wear-out, as compared to solid construction tantalum and solid polymer type electrolytic capacitors.

NSPE-A series are RoHS and REACH compliant and compatible with Pb-free reflow soldering up to +260°C. Typical unit pricing from $0.29 to $0.69, with lead times from 8 to 10 weeks. Please contact NIC today, for free evaluation samples and to review your application requirements.
