Title Characterization of Polymer Tantalum Capacitors, FY11.
Publication Date Mar 2012
Media Count 26p
Personal Author E. Reed P. Spence
Abstract This is the revision to the report submit in FY10, 'Characterization of Polymer Tantalum Capacitors,' that was a continuation of a three phase task to characterize tantalum polymer capacitors. Phase 1 included the history of tantalum capacitors from wet to solid, an introduction and comparison between manganese dioxide (MnO2) and polymer tantalum capacitors, a discussion on different polymer types, and some typical electrical characteristics. Phase 2 presented independent competitive electrical performance data, dielectric robustness data, and reliability data. Phase 3 is intended to conduct highly accelerated time to failure testing and develop acceleration models to predict performance at rated conditions. Tantalum polymer devices of several different voltage ratings will be tested and assessed. At this time, only data associated with devices rated at 4 V are presented.
