THA and THAS Series Thinpack

THA/THAS Series capacitors are thinner and more cost effective than most alternative technologies.  Unlike traditional cylindrical electrolytics, THA/THAS capacitors have sealed, laser-welded aluminum cases to eliminate the need for space-wasting end seal gaskets. Compared to cylindricals, flat THA and THAS capacitors are up to 60% smaller by volume. The design includes a valve to vent hydrogen gas buildups that may otherwise cause pressure-related swelling.  The 105°C-rated THAS Series adds a 0.38mm form-fitting stainless-steel sleeve to further prevent swelling at the highest temperatures. Can replace arrays of SMT, radial, or axial aluminum electrolytic and solid tantalum capacitors.

Aluminum Polymer Capacitors

Possessing much lower ESR than other capacitor technologies, CDE’s aluminum polymer capacitors are ideal for board-level power conversion where high ripple current capability is needed. We offer this technology in molded chip, vertical chip (V-Chip), and radial form factors. For applications requiring the higher CV range of aluminum electrolytics, with the low ESR properties of the aluminum polymer, explore our Hybrid Polymer-Aluminum Electrolytic.

Products Include:

  • Radial
  • Vertical Chip
  • Molded Chip
  • Flat
