Conductive-Hybrid-Polymer vs Conductive-Polymer Elektrolytecapacitor

Both Conductive Polymer Hybrid Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors and Conductive Polymer Electrolytic Capacitors are types of electrolytic capacitors that use a conductive polymer material as the electrolyte. However, there are some differences in their construction and operation.
A Conductive Polymer Electrolytic Capacitor consists of two metal plates, or electrodes, separated by a thin layer of dielectric material, typically an oxide layer on the surface of one of the electrodes. The electrolyte used in these capacitors is a conductive polymer material that allows for the flow of current between the two electrodes. The capacitance of the capacitor is determined by the surface area of the electrodes and the distance between them.
A Conductive Polymer Hybrid Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitor, on the other hand, combines the advantages of both aluminum electrolytic capacitors and conductive polymer electrolytic capacitors. It consists of an anode made of aluminum foil, a cathode made of conductive polymer, and an electrolyte that is a combination of a liquid electrolyte and a conductive polymer material. This hybrid design allows for a high capacitance while maintaining the low equivalent series resistance (ESR) and low leakage current of conductive polymer capacitors, while also providing the high voltage rating and high ripple current handling capability of aluminum electrolytic capacitors.
In terms of operation, both types of capacitors function similarly in that they store electrical charge on their plates when a voltage is applied to them. However, the conductive polymer material used in these capacitors allows for a faster charging and discharging cycle compared to traditional electrolytic capacitors, resulting in improved performance in high-frequency applications.
Overall, the main difference between Conductive Polymer Hybrid Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors and Conductive Polymer Electrolytic Capacitors is in their construction, with the hybrid design offering a balance between the advantages of both aluminum electrolytic capacitors and conductive polymer electrolytic capacitors.

Why are components like ultracaps called different names?

The variety of terms is explained by the English-language terms commonly used in the electronics industry, which are often mixed with German terms or used synonymously. In some cases, manufacturers have also introduced artificial terms to better distinguish themselves from competitors. Here are the most important examples:

Double layer capacitors (DSK) are referred to synonymously as:

  • EDLC (Electric Double Layer Capacitor)
  • Supercapacitors = Supercaps
  • Ultracapacitors = Ultracaps
  • Goldcap™ [Panasonic]
  • Boostcap™  [Maxwell]
  • Greencap™  [Samwha]
  • PURIXEL™  [Pureechem] for supercap cells
  • PURETRON™  [Pureechem] for supercap modules
