Conductive Polymer Capacitors have excellent characteristics achieved by using electro-conductive polymer as electrode material. Tecate Group offers Conductive Polymer Capacitors in surface mount or radial lead configuration, and low to extremely low ESR. [read more]
In a solid-state capacitor comprising a positive and a negative electrode, a dielectric medium and a solid electrolyte, the solid electrolyte contains an electroconductive polymer as essential constituent. The electro-conductive polymer capacitor does not use liquid electrolyte, so they will not dry out, leak, or suffer gas buildup and burst. The circuit level benefits of this type of capacitor are noted below.
