Capacitor selection to the uninformed seems like a simple choice, but the demands, challenges, and expectations of modern electronics prove otherwise. As more electronic systems continue to be integrated into our automobiles, the need for capacitor technologies which deliver high reliability, long life, stable performance, low ESR, and low cost continue to grow. Polymer capacitors have met these needs in the enterprise, commercial, consumer, medical, and aerospace segments for more than 15 years. But polymer technology has been challenged when it comes to meeting the AEC Q200 requirements. Today, these challenges are being overcome as polymer capacitor technology makes its entrance into the automotive segment. Read this paper to learn more.
