Long-life flatpack capacitors

16 July 2014 Passive Components

The MLP and MLS series of aluminium electrolytic capacitors from Cornell Dubilier are supplied in flatpack packages for applications that must fit long-life components into low-profile housings.

The MLP delivers up to 20 Joules of energy storage in a 1,25 cm height with 50 years’ life at +45°C, and can be readily heatsinked to double ripple current capability. Its ability to withstand temperatures up to 85°C, high energy storage and box shape make it ideal for voltage holdup or filtering in military SEM-E modules, telecom circuit packs and computer cards.

The MLS is designed for hi-rel military systems and applications operating above 85°C. It has 100 years expected operating life and can withstand altitudes above 80 000 feet. The parts in this series come in a rugged, stainless steel case which assures flatness to beyond 125°C.

MLP and MLS capacitors are well suited for military markets such as radar, aviation and vehicles as well as avionics communications, voice box recorders and power supply.
