Hybrid capacitors are the logical development of aluminium electrolyte and polymer capacitors. They combine the advantages of both technologies in the range up to 80 V and are therefore extremely interesting for current application requirements in industry, medicine and the automotive sector.
The technical requirements for complex electronic circuits are ever increasing, while the form factor is constantly being reduced. The integrated circuits use the space above circuit boards, and passive components – particularly block capacitors – need to be as close as possible to the CPU. The solution is to integrate passive components under the CPU or directly into the circuit board.
