Low-profile aluminium electrolytic capacitors

25 November 2019 Passive Components

At 2 and 3 mm thin, Cornell Dubilier’s ULP series offers high energy density in a low-profile aluminium electrolytic capacitor. Designed specifically for applications requiring bulk capacitance and the lowest board profiles, type ULP offers considerably higher energy density than arrays of surface-mount capacitors.

With energy density exceeding 0,4 J/cc, a single ULP capacitor provides much greater bulk storage in a smaller footprint than a bank of low-profile SMT capacitors. Due to its low weight, the ULP is ideal for use in portable devices and is well suited for a wide range of applications where height profile, board space, and weight are critical design factors. In such situations, the ULP is not only cost-competitive, but it also improves circuit reliability through use of a single component versus an entire array of SMT capacitors.
