OS-CON from Sanyo Electronic Device acquires low equivalent series resistance (ESR) and noise reduction capability at high frequencies. Additionally, the lead-free and RoHS-compliant OS-CON’s ESR is stable even at low temperatures since the electrolyte is solid. Operating temperature ranges from -55 to +125°C (-67 to +257°F), capacitance ranges from 1 to 2700 µF, and voltages reach 35 V with the guarantee of 85°C and 85% RH, making the series suitable for automotive and industrial equipment. The series is available in surface-mount and radial designs. Common uses of OS-CON are for backup, bypass, smoothing, and noise reduction. The series is commonly found in applications such as ECUs and small modules because of the ripple-reduction capability, low ESR, low-temperature stability, and small size. One 6.3-V, 100-µF OS-CON can replace three 6.3-V, 680-µF aluminum electrolytics (one-tenth the size) and still provide a lower ESR value.
