Niobium Oxide

Niobium Oxide

The Niobium Oxide based solid electrolytic capacitors are well suited for automotive applications where high reliability, long life, and high safety is of primary focus.

OxiCap® products offer extremely consistent and strong performance with high reliability down to 0.2%/1000 hours at 85°C. Products are up to 125°C or 105°C category temperatures, environmentally friendly, RoHS compliant technology, and have lead-free terminations on SMD designs. They provide a safe non-burning high resistance failure mode, which is ideal for all such circuits where maximum 10 rated voltage capacitors are applicable. This series meets AEC-Q200 requirements.

Elektra Award received in 2005 for Product of the Year in Passive Components category.
