The T598 polymer capacitors are specifically designed to operate under harsh environmental conditions with a temperature between −55°C to 105°C/125°C/150°C. These capacitors also offer high capacitance/voltage ratings, with a capacitance range of 10 to 470 µF and a voltage range of 2.5 to 50 V.
Furthermore, they can handle large ripple currents without undergoing any thermal stress. T598 polymer capacitors can deliver robust and stable performance for up to 2,000 hours, which is equivalent to a lifecycle of approximately 15 years. These capacitors are manufactured in an ISO TS 16949-certified plant and are subject to a PPAP/PSW (Production Part Approval Process/Part Submission Warrant) and change control.
Since T598 Electrolytic capacitors are strictly designed to meet the needs of the automotive industry, they are ideal for a variety of ADAS (advanced driver assistance systems) features in automotive applications, such as blind spot detection, emergency brake assistance, and adaptive cruise control. They can also be used in other safety-related features, including airbag occupant detection and alarm systems. T598 capacitors can also be used in the in-vehicle infotainment systems.
In addition to providing reliable, stable and long-lasting performance under harsh environments, the Kemet T598 polymer electrolytic capacitors help engineers to design more space-efficient automotive modules (consider the single-digit ESR). Since these capacitors are halogen-free and RoHS-compliant, they are also environmentally-friendly.
With the increased demand for the transition of manual to hybrid/fully automatic vehicles, the need for innovative and miniature components will also increase significantly—and the T598 tantalum polymer capacitors prove a perfect reflection of that.
