Nichicon realize an aluminum electrolytic capacitor technology upgrade
Electronic components used in the machine, the most versatile capacitor, the largest amount, accounting for about 40% of the amount of all the electronic components, and aluminum electrolytic capacitors capacitor market is the highest utilization rate of the capacitor varieties. Miniaturization of electronic devices, the development trend of the performance of lightweight aluminum electrolytic capacitor put forward higher requirements, the main technology trends are: high temperature, long life, high reliability; low equivalent series resistance (Low-ESR), resistance to high ripple current; chip miniaturization; environmental protection and so on. The high voltage electrode foil high capacitance, low-resistance high electrolyte stability is to become the direction of development.
As the industry leader in aluminum electrolytic capacitors, Nichicon Japanese company in Beijing recently released a new conductive polymer aluminum electrolytic capacitors, to address more applications to provide solutions. PC technology began large-scale development of the last century, so that liquid aluminum electrolytic capacitor can no longer meet the needs of normal operation of the CPU, the overall performance conductive characteristics, frequency characteristics, stability characteristics, life and other advantages of a more solid polymer aluminum electrolytic capacitors gradually get the majority of motherboard manufacturers recognized and completely replace the motherboard CPU peripheral field of conventional aluminum electrolytic filter capacitor become standard.
Nichicon FPCAP (FunctionalPolymerCapacitor) polymer solid aluminum electrolytic capacitor market is the best-known brands in the field of global computer market occupancy rate of more than 30%, widely used in computers, game consoles, LCD TV, wireless base stations, industrial power supply, etc. each field. Nichicon this brand is not original, but in 2009 the acquisition of Fujitsu Display Components (Suzhou) Co., Ltd. comes from. Thereafter, Nichicon FPCAP continued to upgrade research and development and constantly improve the technological level, becoming the preferred solid aluminum capacitors Computers and consumer electronics markets.
Turning FPCAP features Nichicon Electronic Trading (Shanghai) Co., Ltd. Director and Deputy General Manager Mao Jidong listed three characteristics, namely: excellent frequency characteristics suitable for low resistance, high-frequency digital circuits, and allow the large ripple current, a circuit for small contributions overtaken; excellent temperature characteristics, because the internal solid electrolyte is used, even if temperature changes affect the characteristics is not easy, and a high temperature range (in particular low-temperature side) of stable characteristics can be obtained, and for mobile phone base stations and other harsh environments; excellent long life characteristics, because the internal electrolyte is not used, is expected to get a long life.
Technology upgrades driven by product performance leap
In recent years, Nichicon by means of technological upgrading of various product lines for a full range of upgrades, thus closer to the new needs of the market. Mao Jidong, during the release of the upgraded product line relates to radial leaded and surface-mount products NU series PS series of products, especially with the popularity of automated production lines, surface mount products more widely, the market prospects are very promising, surface mount products, is expected to 2017 the average annual growth of 9%, an annual increase of radial leaded products is 5%. By improving the electrolyte and the introduction of new production processes, the two series can handle the maximum rated voltage of 100V, a product most suitable for industrial machinery and machine communication. Currently Nichicon FPCAP radial lead products are 11 categories, surface-mount products reached 10 categories. Wherein the RE-type S8 series is the main push of the current type.
Specific aspects of the upgrade index, NU series of upgrades from the NE to the new series, the capacitor capacitance can upgrade from 680uF to 1000uF, from S8249ml volume is reduced to 156ml S6 of the most suitable replacement from aluminum electrolytic capacitor or a printed circuit board structural changes in demand from the technology more and more miniaturized and chargers smartphones new charging requirements.
The technology upgrade is the biggest reason for Nichicon solid aluminum capacitors new performance upgrade, compared to the electrolyte-type conductive polymer solid capacitors because in the production process increased again impregnated into and / polymerization step to two conductive electrolyte capacitors instead of polymer compound involved, so choose a better cathode material can be created to enhance the performance possible. Nichicon solid aluminum is used in the decomposition temperatures up to 300 degrees conductivity than PEDOT cathode material 100, the characteristics of this material is best conductivity, high heat resistance, which makes FPCAP temperature characteristic impedance the characteristics and ESR characteristics superior to other types of capacitor (compared with ordinary aluminum electrolytic conductivity of a whole increased by 1 million times), and of course in terms of durability because regardless of electrolyte dry phenomenon is also significantly improved.
In terms of product strategy, Nichicon performance FPCAP particularly suitable for use in some custom devices to help customers seeking the ultimate in performance, such as the ASUS enthusiast gamers to create a gaming motherboard with Sicong are Nichicon capacitors. Of course, Nichicon FPCAP not only focus on customized products, Nichicon Hong Kong Limited, Nichicon Electronics Trade Co., Ltd. Shenzhen, China Manpower business circle Dawson, chairman Yan emphasized Nichicon's policy is to provide a variety of different needs standard products to continue to expand market share, at the same time to reconcile and meet customers' top of the pyramid to the special requirements of individual military regulations or the like, as a leader, we need to be able to take into account the whole pyramid.
