TENROD Australia has introduced Sanyo's OSCON capacitors which, unlike aluminium electrolytic capacitors, use a highly conductive organic semiconductor as the electrolyte.

With higher conductivity, the electrolyte layers can be thinner affecting several advantages over conventional aluminum electrolytic capacitors.

The higher conductivity delivers a lower ESR (Equivalent Series Resistance) feature resulting in a much more compact package, thus reducing PC board space requirements.

The higher conductivity electrolyte also makes the OSCON capacitors more thermally stable making it more suitable for low temperature operations (0°C or less).

OSCON capacitors have a long life, 50,000 hours at 85°C, making them very suitable for industrial applications that need long periods of operations.

These organic semiconductor capacitors have excellent frequency characteristics giving advantages to various design applications.
