CDE THA Thinpack Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors
CDE’s THA series of capacitors are a lot like me, high energy density and a low profile. With a calculated energy density of up to 1.1 joules per cubic centimeter, type THA can easily replace banks of surface mount solid tantalum or aluminum electrolytics, which can simplify assembly and lower bulk storage costs with values from 140 µF at 450 V to 18,000 µF at 10 V. The THA series itself is an aluminum electrolytic capacitor, but it uses a high performance foil and electrolyte in a flat package that enables much higher energy density while keeping a low profile; 8.2 mm to be exact. They’re rated for 3000 hours at 85°C, but you can also get the THAS series, which adds a stainless steel sleeve that pushes that to 3000 hours at 105°C and a still-ultra-thin 9 mm profile. The high energy density and low profile make CDE’s THA series capacitors ideal for many applications, like portable computing, drones, LED driver modules, and compact power supplies.
